The All Abilities cycling project aims to make cycling more accessible to those people who find it difficult to ride standard bicycles.
The project allows people to get involved in quality cycle activities that are both physically and mentally stimulating and above all, fun for all.
The partnership with Wheels for All is part of the national Cycling Projects programme – making cycling accessible to all by providing a range of adapted cycles, dedicated support plans and series of training packages.
All Abilities sessions deliver a range of benefits including increased levels of fitness and well-being, social interaction and confidence building.
Specialist bicycles are available at a purpose built park, suitable for people with a range of disabilities. These include:
- Duoplus – a platform bike for wheelchair users
- Davinci Wheelchair bike – a regular bike with a wheelchair attached
- ROAM double side-by-side social tandem for two
