Enhancing Access to Inclusive Cycling Across the UK

Get Cycling is excited to introduce our new inclusive cycle loan programme and social cycle sessions, generously funded by the Motability Foundation. This three-year project aims to increase access to inclusive cycling for disabled individuals nationwide. We offer month-long loans of specialist cycles to qualifying individuals, ensuring everyone can experience the physical and mental health benefits of cycling.

Many of the UK's 12 million disabled individuals may not be aware of the inclusive cycling options available to them. Barriers such as storage, cost, responsibility, and insurance prevent many from owning a cycle. Our programme aims to overcome these challenges, making cycling accessible and affordable for everyone.

To participate in the cycle loan programme, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Self-identify as having a disability (Physical or mental). 
  • Live in the UK with a permanent address and have the ability to provide proof.
  • to receive the loan for free, you must be classified as low-income or in receipt of income-related benefits. If this does not apply, you can apply for the cycle loan programme for a small monthly cost. 

The programme offers free cycle loans to affordable rental options with funding provided by the Motability Foundation.

Our cycles can be loaned for a period of one month, following a consultation. 

That is no problem. We will be hosting a variety of social cycle sessions where you can come out and try the cycles in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

To get started, please fill out our Expression of Interest form. We will then contact you to set up your personalised cycle loan programme. Our team will ensure you find the right cycle and receive the care you need.

We have an exciting range of inclusive cycles for loan. You can see them at the bottom of this page or on this product page.

The programme will be focusing on one area of the UK at a time, so there may be a wait till your area is selected.  

The programme will start in the greater York area and then expand during certain times throughout the UK. 

Our workshop regularly services our cycles. If you encounter any problems while borrowing one, please contact us as soon as you can.

A few of the cycles have electric options, but not all of them. We will provide full instructions on how to use these cycles. 

We look forward to helping you enjoy the benefits of inclusive cycling

As our programme grows we will expand the range of cycles available, please contact our team if there are specific models or adaptations you require.

If you are a local authority, community organisation, or disability support groups who may benefit from this loan scheme, we would love to speak with you about working together.
