We have a range of cycles which are easy to ride, even if your balance, your use of your limbs, or your ability to learn new skills is challenged.
We run regular inclusive cycling sessions at Pavilion on the Park where we offer helpful support and encouragement to get riding.
Our inclusive cycling sessions at Pavilion on the Park operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays between 10 am and 12 noon.
Trikes - Three wheeled trikes are great for many people whose balance or confidence may make it difficult to ride a two-wheeler.
Tandems - Two wheeled bikes with one cyclist sitting behind another. The rider at the front handles the steering, but both pedal. Cycling on the back of a tandem is a great option for cyclists with blindness or other sensory impairments.
Hand-Powered Trikes - A way of cycling using the power of your arms. A little like the back end of a wheelchair joined to a fully geared mechanism transfering effort for the rider's arms to a front wheel.
Wheelchair Bike Combo - The back end of a bike is attached to a kind of wheelchair, enabling even the least active of participants to experience cycling.
Side-by-Side Tandems - With three or even four wheels, these have the feeling of a small car! Two riders sit in supportive seats and pedal with their legs in front of them. One rider has steering control. These vehicles are great fun for anyone whose balance, skill or confidence levels mean they will be happier riding beside a friend or carer.
Conventional 2-Wheeler Bikes are also available so those who are able can ride regular mountain bikes.
We will aim to accommodate as many riders as possible, but it's sometimes hard to know exactly which bike will be suitable for which rider. You can get in touch by email or phone to speak about which bikes may be suitable for you.
Recumbents – Semi-recumbent tricycles steered by two handles either side of the cycle. Ideal for riders with mobility on one side or who prefer to cycle with legs extended.
Wheelchair Ramp Bike – The front of the cycle is a ramp platform allowing a manual wheelchair to be pushed onto the ramp and harnessed.
Racing recumbent – Very low floor racing recumbent cycle that is fun and fast with handles to steer either side of the bike. Great for riders with bundles of confidence.
Chopper Trike – A fun adaption to our regular trikes with chopper handles and a real old school chopper feel. Stable and very easy to cycle, suitable for riders whose balance or confidence may make it difficult to ride a two-wheeler.
