Wheels For All - Turn Up And Ride!!!

Chesterfield Borough Council have partnered Derbyshire Sport and  Chesterfield School Sport Partnership to establish Chesterfield 'Wheels for All' hub. Local cycling business 'Wheely Fun Wheels' manages the centre and provides instructors. All the partners have worked closely with 'Cycling Projects' from Warrington who are nationally recognised providers of cycling centres for people with disabilities.

The hub is located in the Queen's Park in Chesterfield adjacent to the leisure centre. A route has been identified and approved to use including the old cycle track around the cricket pitch. More able riders will be able to access the Hipper Valley and Holmebrook Valley Trials that run alongside the Queen's Park.

Over the next few weeks 'Wheels For All' are offering 'turn up and ride' sessions. The bikes and their instructors will be on the path around the cricket pitch for you to ‘have a go’ on the dates and times shown below, no booking required. Nominal charge of £1 per person.

Why not go along and try out their range of bikes suitable for riders with disabilities?

The 'turn up and ride' sessions are running from 4.30pm to 4.30pm on:

Wheely Fun Wheels experienced staff run the centre and provide training and guidance on using the bikes, they can train to Bikeability Level 1 & 2 standard if required or simply help riders to get mobile under their own power! Wheely Fun Wheels already deliver Bikeability training to over 1500 children per year in NE Derbyshire and balance bike training to younger children in Chesterfield together with a range of other cycling activities.


There are a range of bikes for disabilities and SEN suitable for both children and adults and an initial discussion with the staff will ensure riders get the best experience. Handcycles, wheelchair carrying bikes and 4 wheeled bikes are just some of those available.
The Chesterfield hub is one of four in Derbyshire, the others being at Carsington Water, Rosliston Forestry Centre and Markeaton Park in Derby.
