A range of activities take place at the two Scottish Cycling Disability Hubs in the West of the country, which make use of facilities at Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park and the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow.

The sessions are for disabled riders of any age and ability looking to develop their technique, fitness and confidence. 

All sessions are run by Scottish Cycling qualified coaches.

Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park

The Castle Semple centre is situated in the village of Lochwinnoch within Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park and provides a brilliant traffic free environment for the coached sessions.

There is a range of two-wheeled bikes, hand cycles, side-by-side bikes, mountain trikes and tandems for participants to use, or riders can use their own equipment.

Friendly and experienced coaches and ride leaders will lead groups on guided rides of varying length and difficulty. Many of the routes are suitable for a wide range of bikes, providing easy access to a safe and supportive environment for discovering new places and making new friends.

Need a bike?

Every month the team will be holding sessions, where you are able to try out a variety of adaptive cycles. These will take place either at Castle Semple or at Scottish Cycling HQ at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow.
