Cycle Buddy

  • VO62153


Description

Our All Ability Cycling project enables and encourages everyone to get cycling.

For some children, and many adults, riding a bike is difficult or impossible due to disability, illness, lack of equipment or confidence. All Ability Cycling aims to give those people the chance to experience the freedom, fun, independence and the feeling of achievement - gaining fitness, confidence and balance that can be achieved through bicycling.
We run supported sessions, guided social rides, events and a buddy scheme across Perth and Kinross. Our volunteers play a vital role in supporting groups and individuals, giving them the chance to have fun and get active. Some of our participants will need one to one support to help them gain confidence riding a bike; with support they can gain the experience to help them gain more confidence and independence. Volunteer Cycle Buddies will make a real difference to participants’ lives through; gaining independence, therapy, social stimulus, exercise and fun all rolled into one. That has to be a great thing and we welcome volunteers to get involved in our work
