All Ability Cycling

Accessible and possible for everyone

At Bikeworks we believe that cycling should be accessible and possible for everyone, regardless of age, disability or experience. To enable this we run All Ability Cycling Clubs. These clubs are open to all and have a range of adapted cycles including.

We run three different clubs, so there is provision across London four days a week.

We also run improver sessions for people who want to take their cycling a bit more seriously.

We rely heavily on the good will on volunteers and offer plenty of benefits in return. If you’d like to get involved, get in touch!

At present we run clubs in three different locations.

Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Little Wormwood Scrubs and Victoria Park. You can see details and maps of where below.

However we are always looking to run more and if you have a space that you think the clubs would be great, please do get in touch at all.ability@bikeworks.org.uk

What are All Ability Cycling Clubs

Our clubs are designed as a place for people to cycle, meet new people and are very much a relaxed environment designed to be accessible to all. The sessions are not coached or intensive sessions simply a place to try out a different type of cycling.

We have a wide range of cycles available for every need or interest. These include relaxed tricycles, high performance KMX recumbents, wheelchair bikes, hand-cycles, four person cycles, two wheeled bikes and many many more. The clubs are free and all that we ask is that you provide us with some details for reporting purposes.

Please note it is much easier if you sign up in advance of the club as it can get quite busy. There is a form immediately below.

All Ability Improvers sessions

If you are interested in taking your cycling a bit more seriously, we run improver sessions on the All Ability Track. These are specifically designed to support groups who may not otherwise feel confident using the track, whether that’s due to a disability, older age or just lack of confidence. If you are a slightly more confident cyclist it is probably better to contract the Velopark directly for professional coaching classes or support. If you are interested in taking part please contact us on all.ability@bikeworks.org.uk

The clubs rely heavily on the good will and support of volunteers.

If you love cycling and want to help build a local cycling community please get in touch with us by calling the office on 020 8980 7998 or by emailing us at all.ability@bikeworks.org.uk

Private Sessions

For groups or organisations working with people facing health, age or disability barriers to cycling we are able to provide closed clubs. These are sessions just for your participants with exclusive access to the bikes. To find out more about this please get in touch on all.ability@bikeworks.org.uk
