Everyone is welcome!
Have a look at our 2022 activities:
This year, we are able to offer a wonderful variety of free walking, cycling and nature activities. You can join one activity, a series, or all of them! Click on the activity heading below to find out more.
With a 97% success rate, you’re pretty much guaranteed to get into cycling on our friendly Cake Confidence start cycling scheme. We can provide hire bikes and equipment if needed. New courses start every month on a Saturday in a cafe, over cake if you wish!
By adopting Car-Lite Living, you’ll be healthier, keep your travel affordable, meet new friends in the community, take climate action and enjoy life more! We offer advice, personal journey plans and 1:1 walks, bike and bus rides to enable you to swap driving for greener journeys.
As part of a small group, you’ll feel wonderful after being guided around some of York’s most beautiful green routes and spaces on our Nature Time experiences. The Walks and Rides take place at the evening or weekend.
You’ll feel happier after an hour in the fresh air on Trixie the rickshaw with our friendly volunteers. You’ll all have fun riding together through the lovely green spaces around Rowntree Park. The Nature Rides may especially suit you if you have restricted mobility, and don’t get out or meet as many people as you would like. Rides take place on weekends.
As a YBB Volunteer, you’ll make a positive difference to people’s lives, and improve your own wellbeing and sense of purpose and satisfaction. We offer a variety of rewarding and enjoyable opportunities. At Summer 2022, these are Cycling Without Age Ride Pedallers, Companions and Income Generation Volunteers.
