We run drop-in inclusive cycling sessions for disabled people and their families, carers or friends, from three bases in south London.
- Our qualified instructors, supported by fantastic volunteers, help participants try our cycles or get comfortable on the one that suits them, and offer ongoing support.
- Relatives, friends and carers are welcome to join the fun.
On your first visit…
- If you’ve not cycled with us before please arrive during the first half hour of the session to say hello and have an induction.
- If you’re a group of five or more please let us know in advance the sorts of cycles you’d like to try so we make sure they’re available: phone 020 7346 8482 or email.

Please be advised that due to continued construction work on the site there is limited parking and the mud and puddles. Therefore, please be very careful when entering the site. We also advise you to ring the session phone 07578 746 448 before you set off each Monday over the next couple of months, due to the final phases of work which will inevitably affect the road and paths surfaces and might lead to short notice cancellations.
We apologise for any disruptions and we’re very much looking forward to the opening of the new Pavillion in March, hopefully.

“You provide something we can’t do elsewhere. You provide equipment that all people across the impairments can use…a rare place people with multi-impairments can meet and mix.” Will
“I like the track because it is safe. I ride really fast because I want to cycle in the Special Olympics. I like seeing all my friends and trying out different bikes.” Kate
“ “I think this is a wonderful scheme for kids with special needs, where they can practise their cycling skills in a very safe place.” Jo, Harvey’s Mum
