Have a look at the photos of people enjoying our Friday morning sessions.
"Jamie enjoys the sense of independence cycling gives him, its something he can do on his own and at his own pace. He loves the fact that he is doing exercise which he knows is good for him and he enjoys seeing familiar friendly faces too. He really looks forward to his visits on Fridays."
"I love to come here as I like to cycle very much. I am also very fond of a lot of people here and the music adds to an exciting atmosphere" Ben
"I really look forward to my Friday morning WFA sessions. All the volunteers are very helpful and friendly. I find open-air exercising not only physically but also mentally and emotionally very stimulating. When growing up I never learnt to ride a bike and now, as a blind person, cycling gives me a sense of freedom." Sevita
We provide inclusive cycling facilities for all in a safe supportive environment, come and join the fun!
Wheels for All - Oxford provides facilities for people with a wide variety of needs aged 16+ to enjoy cycling every Friday morning on the Athletics Track, Horspath Road, Oxford.
It is part of a national all-inclusive cycle initiative developed by Cycling Projects with the aim of making cycling accessible to all with a particular focus on offering fun. There is a wide range of bikes available during the session including a wheelchair transporter, several tricycles, a quad, side by sides, a tandem, hand cycles, e-bike and several 2 wheel bikes.
The service users generally come with a carer or support from their school or club and the session offers an opportunity to socialise for everyone attending but independent users are also very welcome.
The activity is being both physically and cognitively stimulating; for some service users this is the only opportunity for physical activity open to them.
Come and join the fun! We try to run sessions whatever the weather but if it is really bad we occassionaly have to cancel (announced by email, facebook, Twitter etc on the morning)
