Wyre Wheels returns to make cycling accessible to everyone

Wyre Wheels is run in partnership with the Wheels for All initiative, a nationally recognized program that provides specially adapted bicycles for people with disabilities and different needs.

If you have reduced mobility and enjoy cycling in the park, you can join the Wyre Wheels sessions every Friday starting March 25.

Sessions run from 10.30am to 1pm (with last admission at 12.30pm) and cost £4.

Participants will have the opportunity to ride adapted bikes, including tricycles, side-by-sides, handbikes, quads and wheelchair bikes.

Sessions are led by trained facilitators who have the knowledge and confidence to work with suitable cycles.

Councilor Lynne Bowen, portfolio holder for leisure, health and community engagement at Wyre Council, said: “After so much time under coronavirus restrictions, it is great to be able to launch our program again of health and well-being. Wyre Wheels gives everyone the chance to experience the benefits of cycling.

The council is also looking to expand its volunteer pool to allow even more people to participate in Wyre Wheels and is hosting an Open House on Friday, April 1 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Memorial Park for anyone interested in learning more.

You can also contact the town hall at [email protected] or by calling 01253 887234.
