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. We have plans to also offer this service in the Weymouth area.

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. 

New consultations are currently suspended until September 2022 due to high demand but you can complete the enquiry form and we will get back to you.

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.

Complete your Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PARQ)

If you are a new participant to the accessible cycling programme, a returning participant or if your health condition has changed, we ask that everyone who takes part completes a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire.
