Cycling Projects, the national inclusive cycling charity, is pleased to announce the launch of the North Wales Wheels for All on 21st February in Prestatyn.
Wheels for All enables children and adults with disabilities or differing needs to enjoy the benefits of cycling regularly in a safe, sociable environment using a range of specially adapted bikes supported by experienced staff and trained volunteers.
A drop in event will take place on Wednesday 21st February between 11am to 3pm at Alive Church, 200 Victoria Road, Prestatyn LL19 7TL. Tricycles, hand cycles, side by sides and bikes for wheelchair users will be available to try out. No need to book.
The charity, Cycling Projects has secured funding from the Steve Morgan Foundation to set up Wheels for All centres over the next three years across Flintshire, Denbighshire, Conwy and potentially Gwynedd. The settings will be a mix of local parks, cycle greenways and athletics tracks, safe spaces for those trying cycling for the first time or returning after a long period away perhaps due to limiting health conditions.
New project co-ordinator, Janet Gregory, is working closely with occupational therapists, sports development, local council and healthcare staff.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to extend the 50+ Wheels for All centres already running successfully. We welcome the involvement of individuals, groups and families. If you would like to find out more, perhaps train as a volunteer, donate a bike, fundraise for us then please do get in touch with me.”
