CYCALL is fundraising to purchase a Van Raam Velo Plus Wheelchair Transporter Bike.

Lancing Delivery stage

£7,450
pledged of £11,225

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

A Wheelchair Transporter Bike allows a wheelchair to be safely secured on a platform at the front of the bike. This means that adults and children with complex health needs can experience the joys of cycling feeling the wind in their hair and the sun on their face. The bike has electric assistance which makes pedalling more comfortable for the 'pilot'. CYCALL runs adapted cycling sessions along the beautiful coastal cycle path from Beach Green, Lancing heading East towards Widewater Lagoon. CYCALL is developing partnerships with local dementia organisations, SEND schools, support groups and residential homes. We also offer CYCALL sessions to individuals.

What we'll deliver:

  • Adapted cycling sessions for disabled adults and children

Why it's a great idea:

SCOPE cites that 49% of disabled people feel excluded from the general population. CYCALL has two main aims; tackling inactivity in groups of people who encounter barriers to exercise and tackling loneliness by creating opportunities for people to become involved in a meaningful activity. CYCALL is keen to promote inclusive leisure activities where the whole family can be involved. We will also provide a 'buddy' rider for anyone who finds themselves socially isolated due to age, disability or illness such as Dementia. CYCALL rides will be a social event and an opportunity to create meaningful friendships. We are currently recruiting volunteers and are keen to hear from students and young people who would like to act as 'buddy' riders , thus encouraging inter-generational friendships. One participant of an adapted cycling session reflected ..."because of my disability I thought I'd never be able to ride...finding I can is amazing".

Steps to get it done:

  • CYCALL rides are beginning on Saturday, June 1st 2019
