Around 25 of our Children and Young People’s Services clients and their parents or carers had a great time at a Wheels for All Taster Session on a sunny Saturday afternoon on the 25th May 2019, at the Bannister Outdoor Sports Centre.

We arranged the event in collaboration with Cycling Projects, an inclusive cycling charity.

The group got to enjoy a variety of accessible and inclusive cycling equipment including bicycles and tandems.

We were especially delighted to see so many of the people we support enjoying healthy outside activities with their parents and family members.

One client’s mum said:

I think the event was brilliant. I wish we could have an after-school programme where she could participate in cycling on a regular basis, the adapted bikes were fabulous. It gave her a real sense of independence. It was also in a very safe environment and it’s something she can do by herself.

The taster was a huge success and we are now working with Wheels for All to try and make this a permanent part of our activity programme.
