Wheels for All Bolton

Wheels for All Bolton run inclusive sessions at Bolton Arena and Leverhulme Park Community Leisure Centre. Both sites welcome all ages and all ability cyclists, and have a wide selection of adapted bikes to choose from. Please see CTCs guide to adapted cycles for detailed information. 

About the centre 

Both centres are affiliated to CTC and provide people of all abilities with the chance to enjoy cycling. They were established with the help of Cycling Projects through the Wheels for All. The Wheels for All programme is a nationally recognised programme that offers cycling opportunities to people with additional needs by giving access to adaptive cycles in a supportive and comfortable setting.

Bolton Arena and Leverhulme Park Community Leisure centre offer a wide range of sports and wellbeing activities. Services at the Arena include tennis, football, children's sports activities as well as meetings rooms and employee fitness programmes. Leverhulme focuses on fitness classes and gym facilities, whilst both sites are supportive of local community activity groups and sports clubs.
