Thanks to the help of local businesses and donations we have been able to add a new Veloplus at Warrington Wheels for All.
Thanks to the generosity of two local businesses in Warrington as well as that of the general public, we are delighted to announce the addition of a new Veloplus cycle. An adapted cycle for the use of those in a wheelchair, giving people the chance to feel the freedom of riding on a bike and maintaining our inclusive nature of the charity. The two local businesses, Solvay and Enterprise Van Hire, have been incredibly kind. We want to thank them massively for the giving they have shown as well as that of the public who have also given very generously.
To celebrate the new arrival, on the 9th of June we held our normal session as well as inviting a few guests from Warrington Disability Partnership, who got right into the thick of things. Not only making use of the new addition but trying out the range of other inclusive and adapted cycles we have on off.
Helping us to raise money for Cycling Projects.
There are plenty of way to help us raise funds for not just this centre, but the nationwide centres we run, as well as help run. Regardless of amount, we appreciate anything that you can give. We have various ways for you to donate:
Wheels for All is coming to the South Lakes.
A gathering geared to bring cycling to everyone beckons in the heart of the Lakes with specially adapted cycles for people of all abilities.
Showcasing the benefits of being mobile in the great outdoors, the Wheels for All event is being staged at Brockhole, the Lake District Visitor Centre on the shores of Windermere on Friday, May 12th offering children, adults and the elderly the chance to cycle regardless of ability
Specially adapted cycles will cater for a wide range of abilities and people are being invited to roll up and have a go, while enjoying sensational scenery and beautiful grounds.
Local cycling and care organisations will have stands and displays. There will also be plenty of outdoor entertainment and fun for the whole family.
The event is led by Cycling Projects, the charity behind nationally recognised programme, Wheels for All. By using specially adapted cycles, it provides quality, fun activities that are both physically and mentally stimulating for adults and children with disabilities and differing needs.
Lake District National Park’s CEO, Richard Leafe, said: “We recognise the demand for outdoor activities that are accessible for all ability groups and want to put the Lake District on the map for disabled visitors to come and enjoy the spectacular scenery on offer.
“We hope this event will be the catalyst for a longer-term project to develop more activities and facilities for all abilities across the park.”
People can turn up on their own, with families, or groups and have a go, learn more about all-ability Lakes’ cycling opportunities and find out how they can help to support the initiative.
Ian Tierney, director of Cycling Projects, explained: “We are delighted by the positive response we have received so far from local groups and charities, sponsors and vital stakeholders, such as the Lake District National Park Authority.
“We know how much pleasure that having a go on an adapted bike can be, both for the user and also their family and carers. We are excited to work with our local partners to develop a really rewarding programme of cycling activities across Cumbria for both local people and visitors.”
The Brockhole event runs from 10am to 3pm on May 12th.

Cycling Projects is very grateful to vital sponsorship from James Cropper, Kendal Cycling Club and Cumberland Building Society’s Kendal branch, which had made the event possible.
