Preston on Wheels

Preston on Wheels offers inclusive cycling for all abilities at two locations in the city, Moor Park and West View Leisure Centre. They have a wide selection of adapted bikes to choose from and CTCs guide to adapted cycles provides detailed information on their usage. 

About the centre 

Preston on Wheels is a Cycling UK affiliated centre. The inclusive project was initiated by Cycling Projects,.and their Wheels for All network, a nationally recognised programme that aims to make cycling accessible to all. Preston on Wheels was funded by the Big Lottery funding and in partnership with Groundwork.
