CTC Reading and Reading Borough Council, in partnership with British Cycling, and Palmer Park Velo, held an inclusive cycling session on 1 March at Palmer Park with Brookfields Special SEN School.
At the session, students with physical or mental disabilities were able to cycle on a bicycle, tricycle or tandem.
The programme started at the beginning of February, and within those four weeks, coaches saw very encouraging results:
“In four weeks, we’ve gone from most not being able to ride at all to being able to cycle and now many can ride tandems,” said Andrew Pitt, British Cycling qualified coach, Road, TT and Track Club coach. “I think what those kids have achieved is amazing.”
