About Neal

Neal lived with Cerebral Palsy but never let his disability stop him from advocating for people with a variety of physical disability. He chaired the Barking and Dagenham International Day of Disabled People, and was lead Volunteer for Barking and Dagenham’s Access Group and a member of the West Ham United Disabled Supporters’ Board.

Neal sadly passed away after a long battle with Cancer aged 38 on September 5th 2021.

What is the Neal Crowley Legacy Ride?

In partnership with the International Day of Disabled People (IDDP), and funded by Sport England, we pay tribute to Neal (who was a keen cyclist) – in typical Bikeworks fashion…by organising an epic guided cycle ride.


  • 11:00 Meet outside Lee Valley Velodrome
  • 11:30 Schedule departure time

Planned route info
The ride will be guided from the Velopark all the way to Barking Town Hall which is around 6 miles. We will also plan a stop at the West Ham Foundation where refreshments will be available.

If you’d like to get involved please talk to Simon Shone (our All Ability Club manager) or speak to an instructor to find out more.
