Wheels for All Cycle Centres
Aiming High Grant provided funding for 4 cycle hubs in Derbyshire. These are in Derby, Rosliston, Carsington Water and Chesterfield. Adapted bikes and trikes have been supplied and people can contact each individual centre to arrange hire. Staff have been specially trained to provide support,
The Wheels for All hub is located in the Queen’s Park in Chesterfield adjacent to the leisure centre. An agreement with Chesterfield Borough Council has enabled us to utilise the old cycle racing track around the cricket pitch in the Queen’s Park for a superb traffic free experience.
Our experienced staff run the centre and provide training and guidance on using the bikes, we can train to Bikeability Level 1 & 2 standard if required or simply help riders to get mobile under their own power!
There are a range of bikes for children and adults with disabilities and an initial discussion with our staff will ensure riders get the best experience.
We have a number of ‘open’ sessions through the year which are fully funded and details can be found on our website:
With a few weeks notice we can usually set up a session for groups or individuals and it may be possible to fund these sessions through Derbyshire County Council’s ‘County Rider’ scheme.
We have worked with Cycling Projects from Warrington, Derbyshire Sport, Chesterfield School Sport Partnership and Chesterfield Borough Council to established the Chesterfield Wheels for All hub.
Machines available are a handcycle, a wheelchair carrying bike, side by side 4 wheel bike, single, very stable 4 wheel bike, trikes with low step over frames and a variety of trikes suitable for children.
Wheely Fun Wheels is the chosen company to manage the Wheels for All in Chesterfield.
