All Ability Clubs

At Bikeworks we believe that cycling should be accessible and possible for everyone to enjoy.

The Drop-in All Ability Cycling Clubs are designed for people with learning, physical and/or sensory disabilities to enjoy cycling on a range of adapted cycles, including single/tandem tricycles, side-by-side cycles for two or more people, wheelchair platform cycles and go-kart style recumbent cycles.

The clubs are also a social and friendly place where you can meet the same people time after time.

After being shown how to use the cycles by our friendly volunteers and staff, attendees are free to cycle around the park or green space  with their friends, family or carer.

Who can come to a club?

The clubs are suitable for almost everyone regardless of age, ability or experience level and they are free to access. Unfortunately we cannot cater for very young children due to the size of the cycles, with the youngest approximate age we can accommodate at the clubs being 5 years old. Parents, carers and support workers are encouraged to attend and ride with the people they are supporting. Those with complex needs must be accompanied by a parent, carer or support worker as the club instructors won’t be able to offer one-to-one support for individuals.

What can I expect in a session?

The first time you arrive at a club you will need to register on our database- this usually takes less than one minute. Each time you come to the club after that we will look up your name on the database and add you to the session register.

You will then choose the type of cycle that you want to ride – the friendly club instructors and volunteers will help you with this. You can then ride your cycle around the park/space provided. The instructors will ask you to come back after a fixed amount of time so that other attendees can have a turn, however if it’s a quiet session and nobody is waiting there is the possibility of riding for longer.
