Regular drop-in sessions
- 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 download and fill in the New Cyclist Registration or Group Registration; this will save time at our reception desk when you arrive.

“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
