About the Centre

The centres are CTC affiliated groups that provide people of all abilities with the chance to enjoy cycling. They were established with the help of Cycling Projects through the Wheels for All Programme and have been running since 2009. Wheels for All is a nationally recognised programme that offers cycling opportunities to people with additional needs by giving access to adaptive cycles in a supportive and comfortable setting.

We currently working hard to increase the children’s fleet at the Arena so we can accommodate more children and younger students. we are looking specifically for trikes, quads, hand cycles and child-backed tandems. If you have one to donate or know of someone that has one they could donate, please do contact the Arena and let them know. We are always interested in fundraising ideas and any opportunities to apply for grants or awards to support the work we do, so let us know if you are aware of any or if you would like to help us to raise funds

We have created flyers for both Arena and Leverhulme, feel free to help promote!
