Tricycle / Trike
Great for balance and if you are returning to cycling. Sizes to suit all ages. Click here to read how investing in her own cycle changed Ann’s life. “I now use the trike for hospital appointments and lots of other journeys. It’s liberating: unlike the mobility scooter my trike doesn’t need a battery and I’m doing the work so it’s much better for me.”
Comfy for the back, less pressure on knees and hip joints, and no worries about balance. All ages and sizes.
We have various hand cycles in different sizes and positions. Who needs legs to cycle?
Try a recumbent arm-powered trike (lower and more stretched out) if your legs need to stay straight.
Great fun and no worries about balance.
Great for back support, reducing pressure on knees and hips, and sharing steering and pedaling. We have a wide range of side-by-sides (hand pedaled, as well as feet pedalled or no pedalling at all!) which are excellent for those recovering from injuries or those who just need to enjoy the ride. Your partner does all or the stronger pedaling, allowing you to gently move your limbs and keep them active.
Tandem bikes and trikes
Sighted and non-sighted or stronger and weaker riders can cycle and balance a side-by-side or a tandem together.
Velo Plus Wheelchair bike
You can remain seated in your wheelchair while experiencing the feeling of speed and the wind in your hair!
Wheels for Wellbeing Director Isabelle Clement cycles to work using a hand cycle attachment to her wheelchair. “For me, powering my bike forward is like powering my life forward.”.
Many people with disabilities are able to ride an ordinary bike, and all sorts of adaptations can be made to suit individual needs. A low-step frame means you don’t have to throw your leg over a saddle. Brakes and gears can be adjusted so they are controlled from one side only, for those who can use only one hand. Wheels for Wellbeing trustee Kevin Hickman finds a folding bike his most useful mobility aid, and has adjusted the gearing of his Brompton to accommodate for the fact that he uses only one leg to cycle around.
