Cycling in Sutton and Merton

Bespoke cycle sessions

Cyclesessions

We cater for group bookings for bespoke cycle sessions at the David Weir Leisure Centre.  Great as an event for a group of adults or students.  We’ll organise races and cycling games to make the event fun, and can provide group or one-to-one cycle training.  Contact us 020 8404 1522 or cycling@ecolocal.org.uk for details.

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.

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!

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.
