Last year more than 30 enthusiastic cyclists raised over £3,000 for Wheels for Wellbeing. Thanks to their fantastic fundraising efforts we have been able to continue to deliver and develop our five weekly drop in inclusive cycling sessions for disabled and older people, reaching over 1300 individuals last year.
This year we would like to invite you to join the ride again and we want to make it bigger than ever! We have an ambitious target of £5,000 which could help 500 disabled people to discover cycling for the first time.
