Cycling Opportunity for Disabled People and Their Families

The Greenbank Cycling Club has secured 3 year funding from NHS Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group’s (CCG) Healthy Liverpool to set up and run a Cycling for All session every Saturday from 10am until 2pm, starting 8 November.

The instructor led sessions, with the support of volunteers, will give disabled people, their family and friends the opportunity to cycle together in Sefton Park. Tricycles, tandems, hand cycles and standard bikes are available for participants and are suitable for people with a range of disabilities including sensory, learning and physical disability.

Cycling Club Chairman Timmy Toner said “The aim of the project is to help as many disabled people as possible to become independent cyclists. Once they have passed their cycling proficiency test they will be able to borrow equipment and cycle independently in the park.

We can offer support and advice to build confidence and improve skills for as long as someone needs it. Cycling is a great way to keep fit, meet new people and get involved.”

No need to book; just meet at Greenbank Sports Academy, Greenbank Lane L17 1AG

Cost £1 per session
