Wheels for All is the name of the Council's scheme to make cycling accessible and available to children and adults who may not be able to ride a conventional cycle. A selection of tricycles, hand cycles and easy to balance scooters has been made available through the Aiming High for Disabled Children fund.
The council's Wheels for All scheme is now recognised as part of the Wheels for All national network by the leading disability cycling organisation, Cycling Projects.
Cycling Projects launched its Wheels for All disability cycling initiative in 1996. Since then Cycling Projects have established over 40 WFA centres where adapted cycling equipment can be accessed and used.
The concept of Wheels for All allows for:
- All to be active through cycling no matter what their level of disability.
- The emphasis to be on the ability of an individual and to support them both physically and mentally.
Wheels for All will:
enable users with restricted mobility to experience the thrill and fun of wheeled recreation
help and motivate children and young people with Autistic Spectrum Disorder who have severe learning disabilities or behaviour which is challenging
increase self confidence and self esteem in young people whose challenging behaviour is associated with other impairments such as severe learning disabilities
offer opportunities to families who want to experience cycling together and who may not currently be able to due to an individual family members disability
Our range of cycles, tricycles, handcycles and scooters covers a wide variety of equipment so there is something for almost every range of disability and age.
To register your interest for the project and to receive information about events in the area using these bikes, please email email@example.com with your name and organisation if applicable.
