Imagine not being able to enjoy the everyday activity of cycling? There are many barriers which prevent disabled people from participating in this wonderful pastime. At CYCALL we aim to remove these barriers by providing adapted tandem bicycles for use along the beautiful promenade of Worthing Seafront, West Sussex. All of the bikes used will be tandem which means that the family and friends of the participant can be involved, making it a truly inclusive cycling experience for everyone. The ‘fun to go’ tandem seats 4 people ~ Great Fun! Other bikes which we are fundraising towards include a ‘wheelchair transporter bike’ and a ‘wheelchair tandem’ to ensure cycling opportunities are available to absolutely everyone. The bikes will be fully adapted which means people with complex needs can use them. As CYCALL grows and develops our vision is to become mobile and take the bikes to care homes, children's and adult hospices and care homes for veterans and schools.
