Recently Wheels for All worked in partnership with the Wiltshire Sports engagement team to bring inclusive cycling to children, adults and the elderly. Wheels for All was welcomed by Salisbury communities and the day was a complete success with many children trying out cycling for the first time with some great feedback ” We want to come back again” and “I’ve had an amazing time”.
A big thank you goes out to Exeter House Special School and Manor Fields primary School and also The Meadows Day Centre who all got involved in the Wheels for All event and left with big smiles on their faces!!
The aim is to make Salisbury Five Rivers Leisure Centre a Wheels for All centre offering cycling for all abilities on a regular basis. The will begin with a season of Wheels for All activities from April 2017.
We realise Wiltshire has been represented in term s of a complete cycling offer and so it is great to have the support and dedication of the disability sports team to make this happen for South Wiltshire

We are really looking forward to a very busy day at the Five Rivers Leisure Centre on Monday 21st November whereby we will be bringing Wheels for All activities to children, adults and the elderly.
The Try Out event is being delivered in partnership with Wiltshire County Council through the Disability Sports development team at the council.
The aim is to gather momentum and ongoing interest for the creation of a permanent Wheels for All offer for all abilities across South Wiltshire and beyond.
We are aware that here is currently very little provision for inclusive cycling across the county of Wiltshire and the aim of this partnership is to create a regular Wheels for All programme for the communuties of South Wilthsire in Salisbury accessible for everyone regardless of their ability.
If you would like to know more about the event and get involved then please contact Robert Paget on 01722 434770 or email email@example.com
Through our Pedal Away initiative we have recently delivered another exceptional Great Pedal Away Challenge which offers rider a chance to take on the challenge of either a 10 mile or a 40 mile tour of the borough of Knowsley.
Over 140 riders took part in the challenge event which showcases the cycle trails, greenways and countryside in and around Knowsley.
We had exceptional weather on the day making it ideal for the cycle challenge.
Every person that entered the event raised funds for the charity Cycling Projects and with the added incentive of those rasing over a £100 receiving a limited edition Cycling Projects cycle jersey!
All proceeds will go towards increasing the fleet of adapted cycles at our Wheels for All centres in Halewood.
A huge thank you goes out to all the riders who completed the events – your support is very much appreciated and of course we really want to thank all the volunteers and partners who made this event such a success – it really couldn’t have happened without you!!
The plans for The Great Pedal Away Challenge event 2017 are for bigger and better things perhaps stretching into neighboring boroughs….so watch this space for further updates..
