Accessible Cycling for people with disabilities

February 2010 saw the launch of a new cycling class specifically for people with disabilities and learning difficulties in Swindon. Since then, the range of bikes has grown and the classes are full.
Cycling For All, disability bikes at the County Ground, Swindon

Thanks to the Big Lottery Fund, we were able to purchase over 20 different specially adapted bikes to be used at the County Ground running track on a weekly basis. What started as a once a week class for the general public turned into a twice a week open class with four additional privately booked sessions per week. This doesn’t include one-off events and summer courses.

How CTC helped provide a perfect cycling solution for one family in Essex

CTC Cycle Champions is unashamedly enthusiastic about getting people back on a bike, often after years and sometimes for the first time ever. Many go on to make cycling a regular part of their daily lives and the benefits are huge. Lee and Emily's story is a great example.

Lee and Emily joined CTC’s Cycle Champions rides after hearing about them from the ACE Health Trainer at Colchester Garrison.

With two young children, lots of family pressures and a tight budget, they were looking for a cheap solution to become fitter that fitted in with their busy lives.

The Cycle Champions rides offered the use of children’s trailers – a perfect solution for Lee and Emily and countless other army and civilian families.

The only way is fun! Reaching new riders in Essex

CTC’s expanded programme of cycling has reached over 1,000 people in Essex this year, thanks to additional funding from Essex County Council, Anglian Community Enterprise and Colchester Garrison.

The total includes 317 people who either hadn’t been on a bike with CTC or at all, and a number have learned to ride a bike for the first time in 2012.

CTC Cycle Champions has formed new partnerships with ACE Health Trainers and Colchester Garrison to name just two and together they are helping to change people’s lives for the better.

Said Emily, who started on the Garrison rides:

“I have lost weight and gained enough confidence to help others thanks to the health trainers and the cycle group.”
