Wyre Council - Wyre Wheels Adaptive Cycling

  • Location: Wyre, Lancashire

  • Purpose: Across Lancashire and Blackpool all tiers of council are working together to make walking and cycling easier and safer to cut congestion and air pollution as well as supporting healthy living. To support residents who are disabled, have limited mobility, recovering from an illness or injury, or are elderly and want to cycle more in order to lose weight, increase their mobility or boost their wellbeing, Wyre Council runs an adaptive cycling programme. 

  • Description: The Wyre Wheels programme runs once a week in a local park with participants paying £4 per session. In the sessions the participants are taught by trained volunteers how to cycle adapted bikes including trikes, hand bikes, and wheelchair bikes confidently and safely.

  • Conservative councillor/ council lead: Councillor Lynne Bowen, Portfolio Holder for Leisure, Health & Community Engagement, and Councillor Simon Bridge, Street Scene, Parks & Open Spaces Portfolio Holder.
