Sheffield Cycling 4 All, an accessible cycling project run by the charity Disability Sheffield offers people who aren’t able to ride traditional two wheeled bikes the opportunity to ride a wide array of adapted trikes.

Sessions take place in the beautiful Hillsborough Park throughout the year, during winter the sessions are 10-2pm every Tuesday and Thursday, and from March, taking advantage of the clocks going forward the sessions are both longer and more frequent.  Check the website for the updated summer timetable.  

If you’re nervous about getting out on a bike or trike for the first time, fear not: the sessions are run by qualified and experienced cycle leaders, who are on hand to provide help and advice throughout the day. There are various trikes to choose from too, each built to cater to specific needs, so everyone can join in the activities regardless of ability.

Why not come and give it a go? It’s the perfect opportunity to be active outside, meet new people and have a laugh. There’s no pressure – you can come along and try out the bikes or just have a chat with the regulars.

It is £4 a session to attend and carers/support/PAs ride for free.

From March 23rd there will be a new timetable in place thanks to the National Lottery Community fund who are funding the next 5 years of the project.  This is allowing Cycling 4 All to run the usual 4 public sessions each week and also to run specialist smaller group sessions. They are currently developing sessions for people who have been effected by a stroke, blind or visually impaired people, anyone effected by mental health issues, with more to follow.

If anyone is interesting in being kept updated with new sessions, times, or want to find out about volunteering opportunities please contact Cycling 4 All directly.
