All Abilities

This project is for anyone who finds it difficult to ride a regular bicycle, but wants to get involved in cycling activities. 

The project is run for disabled people of all ages – children and adults.

  • The sessions are great fun, as well as being mentally and physically stimulating

The sessions are run by qualified cycling instructors.

  • The location is a purpose-built park in Montpelier, Bristol
  • Dedicated support plans and training packages are tailored to meet individual needs
  • Carers are welcome!
