Following on from the success of last October’s Big Bike Revival event in Stornoway, the Highland Cycle Ability Centre is returning to Lewis with a range of adapted cycles for people of all abilities to get cycling.
The Highland Cycle Ability Centre, based in Cantray near Inverness, attracts over 2500 visits annually and caters in particular for people with disabilities. Many individuals and groups from local schools, day centres and support organisations visit regularly throughout the year but Manager at the Highland Cycle Ability Centre, Gareth Jenkins, believes there are still many people out there unable to participate in cycling due to a lack of resources and opportunities. He said....
“We have the ability to get out and about and give people an all-inclusive experience of cycling. Our adapted cycles are perfect for individuals, families and groups. We recently delivered a session to 35 people with Parkinson’s Disease at an event in Stirling and we have reached out to people across Highland in places such as Daviot, Glenmore, Marybank, Inverness and Dingwall. The reaction to our last visit to Lewis was extremely positive and we are absolutely delighted to be returning to the island.”
The Highland Cycle Ability Centre will be offering free sessions on a drop-in basis at the Lewis Sports Centre at the following times:
Wed 21st June: 2pm – 6pm
Thu 22nd June: 10am – 6pm
Fri 23rd June: 10am – 12noon
