The first Festival of Disability Cycling will be held over four days and two venues between 23rd and 26th of September. This event will promote the benefits of cycling to people with disabilities allowing them to try out the widest range of adapted cycles brought together at a single event in the UK.
The event is aimed at individuals, families, schools, support organisations and healthcare professionals and will actively encourage people to give cycling a go rather than just look at the bikes. With a wide range of other fun activities also happening on the day it will be a great place to bring the family for a great day out.
