About us

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.

Participants

More than 1000 disabled people come to our sessions each year; we have regular visitors of all ages and all impairments. Participants and carers tell us cycling gives increased mental wellbeing and better physical fitness (sometimes reducing need for other health services).
