Description of activity

EcoLocal’s Adult Inclusive Cycling project offers cycling to everyone in a safe and supportive off road place…..whether it is on two, three or four wheels! Sessions are inclusive, welcoming all abilities with a wide range of cycles so you can learn and enjoy the benefits of cycling and getting healthy exercise!

Many cycles are accessible for those with disabilities. Friendly cycle instructors will help you take it at your own pace and there are opportunities to get involved in socialising and helping with sessions - why not ask about helping out as a 'trackside supporter'?

Cycling sessions run weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 10am-12noon on the athletics track at the David Weir Leisure Centre and are for adults and those aged 14+.

Sessions run in the sun and rain! If there is snow or heavy frost they may have to cancel - please phone to check.

Adapted cycles and two wheelers enable everyone (aged 16+) to have a go – including people with disabilities, those recovering from injury or may otherwise have difficulty in participating in cycling. Cycle instructors will help you select the cycle that is right for you.

The Duet: This bike is suitable for wheelchair users and those with restricted mobility. The participant can sit at the front and carers or relatives can cycle at the back.

The Velo Plus: This cycle enables participants using a wheelchair who find it difficult to transfer out of their wheelchair to take part. The wheelchair can be rolled on to the cycle’s platform and locked in place.
