Wheels for All Oxford
Wheels for All Oxford provides cycling opportunities for adults (16+) and we aim to make it inclusive so it really is for 'all'.
Some riders come with a carer or supporter; others are independent and come to the session on their own or with a friend.
Some maybe recovering from an accident or learning how to cycle with an impairment and want to try out a variety of cycles, including our e-bikes to see what best suits their needs; other come because they haven't cycled for a long time and want to practice and build their confidence.
Some participants come to enjoy cycling with a friend or partner, especially if one of them is less able.
Some come to learn to cycle and practice their skills in a safe, supportive environment or simply to enjoy riding outdoors in a traffic free space.
All our participants come for the fun, fresh air, and exercise.
Wheels for All are open every Friday morning - booking is essential.
