A Ride In the Park
A Ride in The Park CIC was set up to support individuals and groups from The Park Centre and the wider Bristol community who may not have access to, or take part in, cycling activities. There are currently 3 projects running: On Mondays all ability cycling is offered to various disability groups, on a bespoke, booked session by session basis. Wednesday afternoons are open to all and are more about new or returning cyclists, this Is when both able bodied and disabled, get to try out different bicycles and improve their cycling skills and techniques, helping them gain confidence in short sessions, with informal advice and guidance from trained instructors. On Saturdays, cyclists who are ready, are taken out on rides, using one of the many local cycle paths, in and around Bristol, to places of interest with a support vehicle. The projects are committed to include those with several forms of disability. Older people who may not have cycled for many years are also encouraged to try cycling in a safe traffic free environment. The groups provide a friendly and supportive situation for people to improve their health and in many cases improve social isolation.
All our staff have DBS clearance to work with children and vulnerable adults, and are trained to industry standard guidelines.
