Supportability Wheelers: Disability Cycling
The Supportability Wheelers Disabled Cycling Project offers 3 sessions a week for children & young people and adults with a range of disabilities and additional needs. The sessions take part in Woodbank Park athletics track, which has a fence all the way round with only one way in and out so is safe.
You can bring your own bike but there are a number of bikes and special adapted bike that you and your child can have a go on. There are some support staff there but parent/carers have to stay and support the young person.
There is some disabled parking right by the athletics track, you have to drive through the park – please observe the 10 mph speed limit and put your hazard lights on!
The session run in school holidays and term time
