About the centre 

Wheels for Wellbeing Crawley are a CTC affiliated centre and are run by the Wellbeing Team at K2 Crawley.

Funded by West Sussex County Council’s Aiming High for Disabled Children, the project is run by Crawely Borough Council. The centre aims to make cycling accessible to all people, to remove barriers to sports activities and improve physical and mental wellbeing.

Wheels for Wellbeing are now working with Special Olympics Great Britain in order to teach those with learning difficulties how to ride a bike. This three year programme is funded by Evans Cycles, and new sessions offer coaching and confidence building.  

Wheels for Wellbeing is a recognised Wheels for All Centre, a nationally recognised programme that embraces all children and adults with disabilities and differing needs, to engage in quality cycling activity.
