The sun is shining, the days are getting longer and the flowers are starting to bloom. Spring is finally here. To kick-start this fantastic time of year, Sheffield Cycling 4 All, a charity that offers people with disabilities the opportunity to ride a wide array of adapted bikes, will be launching its 2017 season of weekly open sessions on 23 March.
These sessions take place every Thursday from 10am–3pm until the end of October, in the beautiful surroundings of Hillsborough Park.
The charity - part of Disability Sheffield - has just received an extra £46,000 through HealthRich and is now able to loan bikes at just £3 per session. The funding will also allow the group to run weekly sessions on another day and is looking for volunteers to help with this.
If you’re nervous about getting out on a bike for the first time, fear not: the sessions are run by a qualified and experienced cycle leader, with a minimum of two cycling supporters also on hand to provide help and advice throughout the day. There are various bikes to choose from too, each built to cater to specific needs, so everyone can join in the activities regardless of ability.
Why not come and give it a go? It’s the perfect opportunity to be active outside, meet new people and have a laugh. There’s no pressure – you can come along and try out the bikes or just have a chat with the regulars.
