Cycling is inclusive; it’s for all abilities. No matter what personal challenges you need to overcome, there is a cycle to suite your needs. Adapted cycles are used by people all over the country to get around or as a leisure activity, but if you’re not confident or unable to cycle around independently, then there are inclusive cycle centres that can help.
Inclusive cycle centres provide a safe environment to cycle, with routes that cater for adapted bikes, where individuals, friends and families can cycle together. They attract a diverse range of users, including:
- Children or adults with special education needs
- Children or adults with a range of disabilities
- Families of mixed abilities
- People with weight management or health goals
- The elderly
- Reduced/little mobility (including wheelchair users, amputees, and coordination problems)
- Visual impairments
- Mental health issues
- Recuperation after ill health or after an operation
- Dementia and dementia-related diseases (such as Alzheimer’s)
- Stroke recovery
- Inexperienced cyclists
