Wheels for Wellbeing is a charity run by and for disabled people who have discovered that cycling is a fantastic way to keep fit and mobile, build confidence and have fun. Cycling can be easier than walking, and a useful form of everyday transport.
Exercise is the life-changing ‘wonder drug of the 21st century’, but many people with impairments, long term injury or illness face barriers to taking part in any physical activity. It doesn’t occur to most that cycling could be for them.
Last year we helped more than a thousand people enjoy new skills, freedom, feel-good and independence regardless of disability, health condition or age.
We run regular inclusive cycling sessions in South London for disabled children and adults to try our fleet of two, three and four wheeled cycles. You can find us on Mondays at the Herne Hill Velodrome, Tuesdays at Ladywell centre in Lewisham and Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at Croydon Arena.
£5 per person per session (plus one friend/ carer/ relative cycles for free).
£10 for a Group (one disabled cyclist with up to 3 friends and relatives).
We try to keep prices affordable and good value, while using suitable venues, excellent staff and volunteers and a large range of specialist cycles. It costs us £25 per head to provide these sessions, and we ask for a contribution as above. If you are able to make an additional donation to support our work we would be very grateful.
