About Us

We are a not-for-profit Charitable organisation with cycling facilities on the athletics tracks at Wythenshawe Park, Longford Park (Trafford)) and Boggart Hole Clough. 

Wythenshawe  was the first cycling club with a focus on cyclists with a disability to gain British Cycling’s Go-Ride Accreditation.

Our club was set up in 2004 with encouragement from Manchester City Council’s Leisure Services Disability Development as an inclusive cycling club where disabled people come first.

In May 2010 the facility at Longford Park (Trafford) was formed as a direct result of over-subscribed numbers at the Wythenshawe Track.

The main focus of our  club is to offer cycling to disabled people. We have hundreds of adapted bikes and we are confident that anyone can ride a bike regardless of their ability. We offer sessions throughout the week that are open to the public, catering for cyclists of all abilities.

Our sessions are about recreational cycling where people can focus on fun and the health benefits of riding bikes. We have several hundred riders with a disability regularly attending Wythenshawe ,Trafford  and Boggart Hole Clough every week.

No need to book, just come down and give it a go!
