We’re inviting cyclists old and new to get on their bikes to support Warmley Wheelers, our cycling project for people with health conditions and supported needs. We encourage you to take on a cycling-related challenge during the month of July, and raise money for Warmley Wheelers in the process.
Last year, the challenges people took on included cycling 1,000 miles in a month, learning to ride a unicycle, and cycling 40 miles using a hand bike. Your challenge can be anything you want. You can take part in a group, on your own or with support from a parent or carer. You could use your own bike, an exercise bike at the gym or hire one from Warmley Wheelers. It really is up to you! The only rule is that you must complete your challenge within the month of July.
Everyone who takes part will receive a certificate to celebrate their success and as a token of our gratitude. If you raise £100 or more, we’ll give you a medal. If you take part as a team and raise £250 or more, we’ll give you a trophy. Last year, we held a small presentation event for all our participants, and we would love to hold a similar event this year.
We really enjoy hearing from participants. It’s wonderful to find out why they decided to get involved and how they are getting on with their challenge. If you would like to share your story and pictures of you completing your challenge, email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re happy for us to tell the world about your amazing achievements, we’ll talk about them on our website and social media channels.

Warmley Wheelers offers specialist equipment and a safe, friendly environment to support people who would normally find it difficult to ride a bike. All money raised from the Cycle Challenge will go towards Warmley Wheelers’ running costs.
Judith, who took part in last year’s Cycle Challenge, said this about why she decided to get involved:
“For people with disabilities who live locally, Warmley Wheelers is really important. It can help to make them feel independent and to give them that same level of joy that I get on a bicycle.”
