Project Objectives

Disability cyclists

Cycling UK is supporting more than 40 Inclusive Cycling Centres across England as part of a Big Lottery funded project. In partnership with Cycling Projects, Cycling UK has launched the largest network of centres that provide thousands of people with the opportunity to experience cycling each year, many for the first time. 

The Inclusive Cycling Network offers a unique funding opportunity for your organisation with the chance to create real impact at a local level.
 
Each Inclusive Cycling Centre is unique and can specialise in working with people with physical or mental disabilities, new cyclists, the elderly, injury rehabilitation referrals or just those lacking the confidence to take a bicycle out on the road. The centres are led by dedicated and inspirational staff and volunteers that need our support to improve their facilities, services and to give them the sustainability they deserve.
 
The centres have access to adapted bikes like hand-cycles, tandems and tricycles that allow them to give people with a wide variety of needs a chance to experience cycling. 
 
Cycling UK is committed to supporting them by showcasing the impact of their work for individuals and communities, generating new support in the form of volunteers, training opportunities and funding, and putting inclusive cycling on the agenda so their work attracts important funding.
