Cycling in Sutton and Merton

Adult Inclusive Cycling

EcoLocal’s Adult Inclusive Cycling project offers cycling to everyone in a safe and supportive off road place…..whether it is on two, three or four wheels! Sessions are inclusive, welcoming all abilities with a wide range of cycles so you can learn and enjoy the benefits of cycling and getting healthy exercise!

Many of our cycles are accessible for those with disabilities. Our friendly cycle instructors will help you take it at your own pace and there are opportunities to get involved in socialising and helping with sessions - why not ask about helping out as a 'trackside supporter'?

Sessions are held most Monday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings at the Arena 10am-12noon . Click here to find out where our cycling sessions run.

Our range of cycles

We have a wide range of bikes to try out.  Find out which type of two wheeler suits you, or have fun experimenting with our range of exciting cycles.  Some people start on trikes before moving on to two wheelers. You are also welcome to bring your own bike to sessions if you prefer.

Two wheelers

Two wheelers: Apart from all our unusual and adapted bikes, we do have a range of two wheelers for those that just want to cycle, get exercise, learn to ride or brush up on your skills. Whether you want a comfortable, sturdy bike or a racy little number, we have a two wheeler for you to try.

Our range of cycles

Our adapted cycles and two wheelers enable everyone (aged 16+) to have a go – including people with disabilities, those recovering from injury or may otherwise have difficulty in participating in cycling. Our cycle instructors will help you select the cycle that is right for you.

The Duet

Duet

The Duet: This bike is suitable for wheelchair users and those with restricted mobility. The participant can sit at the front and carers or relatives can cycle at the back. We usually have two of these at our sessions in yellow and green.

Velo Plus

veloplus

The Velo Plus:  This cycle enables participants using a wheelchair who find it difficult to transfer out of their wheelchair to take part.  The wheelchair can be rolled on to the cycle’s platform and locked in place.

Side by sides

Side by side

The Side by Side: This cycle enables two participants to cycle around the track together. Some side by sides allow one participant to steer and cycle, with the other being a passenger. Other side by sides allow both participants to steer and cycle.

Trikes

The Trike: We have a wide range of trikes, some with seats, some with saddles, some built for speed, others for comfort. These are ideal for those who do not feel steady on a two wheeler or just like to cycle in comfort!

Handcycle

The Handcycle: The bike is perfect for those that have limited mobility or weaknesses in the lower half of their body or if you just fancy working out those arms!

The Tag Along

The Tag Along: This enables a participant to steer and guide another behind them. This builds confidence to lead to using a bike independently or for those who wish to cycle with someone else.
