Disability Bike Ride

Young disabled people from across the district are invited to this year's disability bike ride. The ride, which is free, takes place in the grounds of Cartwright Hall on Thursday 8 May from 6pm to 8.30pm.

Everyone is welcome to attend whether they are experienced riders or completely new to cycling, and no booking is required. So please let colleagues and friends know.

Bradford Youth Service have organised the ride and will be providing a range of specially adapted bikes that disabled people can use. 

Youth workers will be on hand to provide support to young people.  There will also be a range of outdoor games such as Giant Jenga which young people can enjoy. 

The ride is being run in partnership with British Cycling, the national governing body for the sport, and Bradford Sport and Leisure, who have also provided a number of adapted bikes to support the event.

This is the second year in which the ride has taken place, with the 2013 event in Lister Park attracting 129 young people.

Naz Ali, Advanced Practitioner, Bradford Council's Youth Service, said: "This is an opportunity for young people who have a disability to come and enjoy cycling in a safe, off-road environment. Cycling provides young people with a great sense of confidence, freedom and enjoyment as well as a way of keeping fit, and the grounds of Cartwright Hall provide a beautiful setting.

"We have been working closely with our partners to develop a range of activities and events that promote cycling to young people who may not have much experience of cycling or the opportunity to enjoy it, so if you have a disability and want to have a go at cycling, come along!"
