    What is it?

    At Bikeworks we believe that cycling should be accessible and possible for everyone to enjoy.

    All-Ability Clubs are designed for people with physical, sensory or learning disabilities, people with health conditions and carers, to enjoy cycling by accessing an exciting range of adapted cycles. Including tricycles, side-by-side cycles, wheelchair-platform cycles and recumbents.

    The regular club sessions offer a social and friendly place to meet other people. Our friendly experienced team will provide advice on the right fit of cycles and any adaptations.

    The clubs are free to access for young people and adults. Carers, family members and friends are encouraged to ride and enjoy the experience. One to one support is not available at the All Ability Club. People with complex needs must be accompanied by a friend, carer or support worker.

    To access the All Ability Club you will need to provide us with your details and sign a consent form. Once we have your details, at each session you come to, we only need to record your attendance.

    Our experienced Cycle Instructors will support you in finding the right cycle, we provide you with a time for riding, at busier times this may be a shorter time. We advise to come earlier and make use of our quieter periods.

    If you are a group of more than four people please email all.ability@bikeworks.org.uk This means we can support your needs on the day. Our sessions are popular and we want to provide the best cycling experience to everyone.

    Some clubs require booking – see the Where and When section below for details

    When you fist attend a club we will register you, taking personal details, for example name, address, date of birth and you will need to sign a consent form. Information is used for the internal monitoring of All Ability Club usage. Any information shared with funders is anonymised.

    Volunteers play an important role at Bikeworks. Our All Ability Clubs has a welcoming environment, providing opportunities under guidance of our team of experienced Cycle Instructors.

    All locations have toilets and a cafe nearby, with the exception of Bush Hill Park and Little Wormwood Scrubs Park which have toilets only and no cafe.
