A range of activities take place at the disability hub in Manchester, which primarily uses the Tameside Road Circuit and the National Cycling Centre as a base.
The sessions are for disabled riders of any ability looking to develop their technique, fitness and confidence – and are the first step for para-cyclists on The Rider Route for the Great Britain Cycling Team.
The Go-Ride team has a number of two-wheeled bikes, hand cycles and tandems for participants to use, or riders can use their own equipment. To reserve a bike it is important for riders to pre-book onto sessions and email the leading coach. This can be done from the individual event listing page (see session button above and contact details for the HSBC UK Go-Ride coach).
PP Simtech: hosts track cycling sessions at the National Cycling Centre on alternate Thursdays at 5pm as part of the disability hub for riders with a disability able to ride two-wheeled bikes. The National Cycling Centre also has a number of track tandems for use and pilots for visually impaired cyclists.
Wheels for All: a nationally-recognised programme that embraces all children and adults with disabilities and differing needs, to engage in a quality cycling activity. There are currently around 50 centres across England and Wales.
Access BMX: BMX sessions hosted at the National Cycling Centre on Tuesday evenings from 6:30pm to 8pm. These sessions are for riders with a disability, with a range of bikes available such as hand cycles, trikes and BMX bikes – all of which can be used on the BMX track.
