The HSBC UK Disability Hub in the East Midlands is partnered with Derby Arena, providing a range of activities for people with disabilities to access dedicated traffic-free coaching on the road and track.
Hub sessions take place on Derby Arena’s 250-metre indoor velodrome and the closed road cycling circuit at Leicester Cycle Circuit at New College Sports Village, Leicester.
British Cycling’s HSBC UK Go-Ride team delivers activities at the closed road circuit at Leicester New College Sports Village. These disability hub 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 Great Britain Cycling Team Rider Route.
The Go-Ride team has two-wheeled bikes, hand cycles and tandems for participants to use, or riders can bring 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 the link above and contact details for the HSBC UK Go-Ride Coach).
Derby Arena: hosts a para-cycling coaching session once a month for beginners, providing the opportunity for new riders to experience the thrill of track cycling for the first time. There will also be structured training for riders looking to refine their track cycling techniques and fitness with qualified coaches. Bikes and tandems are available for riders to use at the venue, if you do not have your own equipment.
Wheels for all: delivers regular all-ability cycling sessions using adapted bikes available on-site including trikes, side by side social cycles and tag along bikes.
