Wheels for Wellbeing understands the benefits we can all gain from cycling. Since 2007 we’ve worked with thousands of disabled children and adults who face barriers to taking part in any physical activity. Our user-led approach means we’re determined to show that anyone can enjoy cycling, given the right equipment, support and environment.

Board of trustees
Our trustees bring broad professional experience in the fields of organisational development, law, communications, healthcare, project management, policy, finance, campaigning. All cycle – whether for fun, fitness, mobility or just to get around – and most draw on personal experience of disability.
