Wheels for All

Comments

Hold on tight all you riders as it's pedals away with resident, Roly, from Heron Hill Care Home!

Wheels for All is a brilliant charity that has centres up and down the country and Roly could not wait to try it out. After a trial run back in October of last year, he hardly ever misses his Saturday
morning session, supported by his partner in crime, Rob, the Well-being leader at Heron Hill Care Home.

Wheels for All embraces every participant, young or old, disabled and people who would otherwise not be able to cycle, to enjoy the benefits of cycling regardless of their ability or cycling needs. They provide a range of specially adapted cycles, which means that anyone can experience the feeling of freedom, the breeze on their face, and the sense of achievement that comes with inclusive cycling.

No matter what the weather, they always make the necessary arrangements so that a session is never cancelled and with the snow a few weeks ago in Kendal, Roly was able to still pedal away inside at the local sports centre, completing 1.5 miles…….wow!

Wheels for all this morning with Roly but with the snow and cold a nice session in the leisure centre sports hall before shopping for snacks. Roly didn't want to miss his activity!

Resident Roly said, “ I love going to Wheels for All. Rob, the Wellbeing Leader, takes me on a Saturday morning. I like going because I like doing exercise with my legs and it gets me out in
the fresh air”.

Our Ledbury Road residents recently enjoyed a visit to Wheels for All in Gloucester. Using specially adapted cycles, the group had a great time racing around the track, having fun and developing their fitness at the same time.
A video we produced for our fantastic client, Wheels for All, has been entered into the Smiley Charity Film Awards. The film promotes their 'We Ride Together' campaign.

In order to make it to the next round they need as many votes as possible, so please take a minute to watch the film and vote for this amazing charity!

It’s taken us a while to get to Marion & Rob, winner of the “name a hand-propelled” trike competition, which was set earlier this year.

The winning name “Thunderbolt” was a hit with everyone at Tomcat HQ as we all thought it was a fitting name for the latest edition to our fleet.

Last Friday, our assessor Kevin Barry and the head of marketing, Nazia White, delivered Rob’s much anticipated trike to Littlehampton. Unfortunately, this was not the winning prototype of the hand-propelled trike, but after careful consideration and a conversation with our chief engineer and MD, Bob Griffin, Marion decided that the trike was not suitable for her son due to his condition, as he would be unable to ride the hand-propelled trike.
The good news is that she has chosen to donate the trike to her local Wheels for All Centre (hooray!) and Tomcat found a suitable alternative – the Tomcat Fizz! A win-win for everyone involved.

Please keep your eyes peeled for future competitions, and in the meantime check out our website for further details about our range of trikes. www.tomcatuk.org

We are pleased to see that the local community is enjoying the new Gooseholme Bridge!

Following the bridge's opening many people have walked across it, including residents with their dogs, cyclists, adapted bikes from Wheels for All and some parents with pushchairs

The new footbridge creates a fully accessible traffic-free link to Kendal town centre and it also repairs an important link for National Cycle Route 6 between Lancaster and Carlisle

For more information about the official opening that took place on Friday 14 October, please visit our website: https://bit.ly/GooseholmeBridgeOpens

Meet Bob, he hasn't cycled since he was 15. 🙌

He joined the Wheels for All Tendring Independent Rider project to help him to stay coordinated and maintain his joint mobility.

Soon we will upgrade him to a Tomcat Dragon to provide more support when riding! 🐉 😁

“Although Luke cannot cycle on open roads due to safety issues, Wheels for All has definitely helped with his physical development and allowing him to get some exercise. Luke has very narrow interests and limited interest in sport due to sensory issues… Through Wheels for All Luke has learnt to ride a tricycle and he gets to be independent, learn a new skill and have valuable exercise, all within a safe environment.” 🚲

No matter your abilities, at Wheels for All we will assist you in finding a cycle that you enjoy and are comfortable using! 😊🙌

Our campaign aims to bring together the world of cyclists, corporates and volunteers to enable cycling to be accessible to every person, on their own terms.

The campaign consists of three key pillars:

1. Creating a volunteer network.
2. Supporting isolated and fragile people to reconnect and be involved through cycling.
3. Improving the community through engagement.

Support can be pledged through a variety of valuable roles:

◾ Wheels for All volunteer
◾ Bike Buddy ride leader
◾ Enabler (supporting an individual in your community to be active through cycling, volunteering opportunities, local delivery for food banks, and Meals on Wheels)
◾ Connector (connecting people and clubs to disability support groups/organisations)

Volunteers are like wheels.... they make the world go round.

Meet Daryl! 😊

When Daryl first started Wheels for All he was nervous as he couldn't ride a bike. He struggled to learn how to as a child and so was uncertain about learning to now, but thanks to John, a volunteer at Wheels for All, he managed to achieve his goal! 🎉

John and the other volunteers at Wheels for All are friendly and patient and love what they do. Daryl remembers the big cheer everyone gave him the first time he rode the bike around the track on his own. 💕

Thanks to Wheels for All Daryl is now confident riding a bike and he has even brought his own, which the volunteers kindly checked over for him. Even though Daryl has now learnt how to ride, he still goes to Wheels for All every week as he loves to see all the volunteers to have a chat and ride the bikes! 🙌😁

Meet Medelena! 😊

Medelena has attended weekly cycle sessions with her school at Wheels for All over the past year and has really grown in her confidence and stamina with her riding. Her Mum first saw her riding at a Wheels for All sportive event this summer and said she was utterly astonished at her confidence riding the hand trike and steering so well.

She had tried her with various bikes over the years without success, but the hand trike had really helped her to gain strength and independence. She shows such obvious enjoyment on the trike! 🙌🎉

Meet James Allen who has been coming to Wheels for All for nearly 3 years after an accident at work left him with a brain injury that affects his balance and coordination.

James attends our Woking sessions every single week but after 2 weeks off due to a vestibular balance assessment, he has missed cycling "I am so pleased to be back on the recumbant today as this exercise helps improve my balance and core strength and after nearly 2 weeks off, I have noticed how quickly I lose muscle.

Cycling every week really makes a difference- it's so great to be back!! I just love these Wheels for All sessions and I recommend Wheels for All to anyone recovering from a brain injury" says James! 😊🚲

Great work Georgia!! 👏

🚲 it has a wider and lower seat then an upright bike
🚲 Puts less strain on your joints
🚲 Much easier to balance and sit comfortably

According to the Activity Alliance Annual Disability and Activity Survey, “Four in five (81%) disabled people want to be more physically active” and “Less than half (40%) of disabled people feel they are given the opportunities they need to be active, compared to 71% of non-disabled people.”

We believe that cycling opportunities should be available to everyone, regardless of age or ability. 🙌

To mark UK Disability History Month (16th November – 16th December), we wanted to share a bit about our story and how our inclusive cycling activities benefit health and wellbeing. 😊

Since launching over 30 years ago, we have helped to set up over 50 locations offering inclusive cycling to people of all ages and abilities. All this is made possible by over 200 committed volunteers.

Inclusive cycling has endless benefits, such as:
🚲 Reducing anxiety and levels of cortisol – the ‘stress hormone’
🚲 Releasing endorphins and boosting mood
🚲 Strengthening and building muscle, improving lung function and reducing blood fat levels
🚲 Reducing the risk of health conditions such as heart disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer and arthritis
🚲 Boosting the immune system
🚲 Improving self-esteem
🚲 Offering a great way to meet like-minded people and make new friends

Come along to your nearest Wheels for All centre to give our range of adapted cycles a try or join us for a friendly, relaxed Pedal Away ride on two wheels. 🚲

First launched in 1992, the UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities is observed every year on December 3rd. The day aims to promote an understanding of disability issues and the importance of an inclusive and accessible society for all.

This year’s theme is: “Transformative solutions for inclusive development: the role of innovation in fuelling an accessible and equitable world”.

Disabled people face many barriers to inclusion in key aspects of society, including transportation, employment, education, sport, and social and political participation.

Wheels for All provide an innovative solution in the form of inclusive and accessible cycling at our centres across the UK.

Every centre has dedicated and friendly volunteers on hand to help participants try our specially adapted cycles, from hand cycles to recumbents and wheelchair transporters. Our participants can experience freedom and independence in a fun and sociable environment.
