If you find riding a traditional bike challenging, the Accessible Cycling programme can open up the joy of cycling to you.

We are an accredited Wheels for All Centre operating from the Golf and Activity Centre at Moors Valley Country Park and Weymouth.

Accessible cycling at Moors Valley Country Park

We have a fleet of adaptive bikes to suit a range of needs, from a lack of cycling confidence to physical or mental impairment. These include side-by-sides, recumbent trikes, a wheelchair bike, tag-a-longs, tandems, tricycles and handcycles.

Getting started 

All new participants must have a 1-2-1 consultation to get started. This can be carried out with individuals or as a group. 

Complete our online enquiry form to get a consultation to get started.

We will come back to you with a choice of dates and times for your 1-2-1. Most consultations are carried out on a Tuesday and cost £5 per participant. 

1-2-1 consultation and next steps 

During your pre-booked 1-2-1 consultation, you will get to try out some bikes and discuss which would best suit your needs. The hire cost for an accessible bike is £5.

Carers can use an additional bike for free if required. Full details on availability and advance booking procedures will be fully explained during your initial consultation.

Please make sure you have completed a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PARQ) before participating in this activity.
