Leeds Cycling Consultation Forum: Wednesday 9th April 2014

Leeds Cycling Consultation Forum is on Wednesday, 9th April, 6.00pm for a 6.15pm start. The meeting will close no later than 8:45pm and we usually go to the pub afterwards.

The meeting is held in the Civic Hall, Leeds - the white building on Millennium Square, with the golden owls. There is some cycle parking outside, and we can also bring bikes into the building and leave them in the downstairs corridor on the left.
