Wheels for Wellbeing (WfW) is an award-winning charity supporting disabled people of all ages and abilities to enjoy the benefits of cycling. Cycling can be easier than walking, a way to keep independent, fit and healthy, a mobility aid, and a useful form of everyday transport. Inclusive cycling means EVERYONE can cycle regardless of age, health condition or impairment.
Think you can’t cycle? Think again!
Last year more than 1200 disabled people and their carers and families learned to cycle with us and enjoy new skills, freedom, health, feel-good and independence. Click here to see some of our highlights from 2015.

- We campaign to improve conditions to make everyday journeys possible for children and adults on any type of cycle.
