Inclusive Cycling Sessions

We only offer outdoor cycle sessions.

On each day the available time will be split into 2 x 45 minute sessions as listed below where 10 cyclists together with a family member or carer will be able to bring their own or borrow the adaptive bikes and enjoy a session.

By using specially adapted cycles, the activities are both physically and mentally stimulating and above all fun. Inclusive cycling sessions are held at the Sportspark track providing a safe environment for our athletes to hone their cycling skills. There will be opportunities to take part in skill and speed training if cyclists are eager to progress to competition or just improve their skills.

Cyclists will have to book in with Sportspark before the date due to the sessions being very popular.

Sportspark volunteers will be on hand issuing the bikes and helmets, giving instructions to the cyclists.

Family members/carers will be responsible for the cyclists, including getting them on and off bikes, escorting them etc.

The cost of a session will be £1.50. To book a session please call us on 01603 592398.

Parkinson's UK Exercise Group

This group is held at Sportspark every Monday from 2:15pm to 3:15pm and led by Pearl Cooper. The cost per session is £3 per person. Please report and hand your £3 fee to the volunteer in the Sportscafé, prior to attending the exercise session so we have a full attendance record.

This is an enjoyable, mainly seated, exercise -to-music session for people with Parkinson’s. Carers are welcome to attend*.

*For any new attendee who is accompanied by a carer we ask that the carer remain with the attendee for the initial 2 sessions. This allows Pearl to liaise with the carer, if necessary, following her initial assessment.

If anyone has any queries about these arrangements or requires any clarification please do not hesitate to contact Pearl Cooper (01603 455149). We wish to emphasis these arrangements have been put in place for everyone’s safety.

We hope you will join us and look forward to seeing you.

Most people stay and have coffee/tea in the Sportscafé, at a cost of 55p per person. New friendships, as well as support, are formed from this group. Please come along and have a go. No need to book in advance.
