Oxford Wheels for All
Wheels for All - Oxford provides facilities for people with a wide variety of needs aged 16+ to enjoy cycling every Friday on the Athletics Track, Horspath Road, Oxford.
It is part of a national all-inclusive cycle initiative developed by Cycling Projects with the aim of making cycling accessible to all with a particular focus on offering fun. There is a wide range of bikes available during the session including a wheelchair transporter, several tricycles, a quad, side by sides, a tandem, hand cycles, e-bike and small wheel (shopper) bikes.
The service users generally come with a carer or support from their school or club and the session offers an opportunity to socialise for everyone attending but independent users are also very welcome.
The activity is being both physically and cognitively stimulating; for some service users this is the only opportunity for physical activity open to them.
Come and join the fun!
Now EVERY Friday
09:30 — 12:00, £3 for the participant, free for carers
