Participants in a Cycle Challenge have raised more than £1,400 for Warmley Wheelers, our cycling project for people with health conditions and supported needs. The money raised will go towards the running costs of the project and maintenance of the fleet of adapted bicycles.
The Cycle Challenge event, which was organised by Warmley Wheelers, invited people to take on a cycling-related challenge of their own choosing to be completed during the month of July. Participants were also encouraged to enlist sponsors to raise money for Warmley Wheelers.
In August, participants were invited to a special event to celebrate their achievements. They were each presented with a commemorative medal and certificate by Warmley Wheelers’ Project Coordinator Andy Underdown.
Congratulations to Joni, Polly, McKenzie, Sue and Lee for completing their challenges.
If you’d like to give money to the Warmley Wheelers Cycle Challenge, there’s still time. Donate here. We’ll also be running the Cycle Challenge again next year, so watch this space.
Warmley Wheelers is a cycle scheme that gives people with health conditions and supported needs the chance to get into cycling. We offer specialist equipment and a safe, friendly environment to support people who would normally find it difficult to ride a bike.
We have a range of specially adapted bicycles for people with disabilities or additional needs – these include battery-assisted bikes, bikes with platforms for wheelchairs, recumbent bikes and a variety of trikes.
We’re based on the Bristol to Bath Railway Path, right next to Warmley Waiting Room Café.
