Inclusive Cycling

Using an adapted cycle is a fantastic way for everyone to have fun, gain more independence and enjoy a sense of freedom. Whatever type of cycle, adaptation or support you need there is likely to be a solution, whether you have a disability, lack balance or want to improve your confidence.

Who, Where and When

CTC Affiliated Clubs

CTC, the national cycling charity, is working with Cycling Projects to get more people riding on adapted cycles in England. 
We're building on the excellent network of Wheels for All centres, providing a joined up approach across the country to enable more people than ever to get out and about by bike.
 
By choosing a CTC affiliated club you can be sure of the best equipment, resources and staff.
 
We'll be updating the map below over spring 2014 to reflect the new network of clubs.
