What is inclusive cycling?

 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
