Warmley Wheelers

This cycle scheme gives everyone the chance to get into cycling. Whether you’re a seasoned cyclist or have never been on a bicycle before, everyone is welcome. And if you have additional needs, we have specially adapted bicycles you can use to ride around a safe area in Warmley Forest Park.

Please note that Warmley Wheelers will be closed for the duration of the national lockdown, which begins on Thursday 5th November.

We look forward to welcoming you back once restrictions have been eased. Pending reopening, our operating hours from December to February will be Wednesday to Saturday from 10am to 1pm.

Volunteer cycle pilot

If you are a carer or support worker who does not feel able to manage the physical effort and responsibility of piloting our larger bikes, we can provide a volunteer ‘cycle pilot’ to ride with the people we support on the large battery assisted wheelchair platform bike and horizontal tandem. Our volunteer has been DBS checked and is fully trained to pilot the bikes. Depending on the level of additional support required, this provision might not be suitable for everyone.

The volunteer cycle pilot service is available between 10am and 12pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. You can book the volunteer cycle pilot service only by calling Project Coordinator Andy Underdown on 07587 034 366 at least one week in advance of the slot you wish to book.

Community Express

If you like arts, crafts and live music, then hop aboard the Community Express. Set up by Liz Gray and Milestones Trust, the Community Express runs a series of activities open to everyone.

For a toe-tapping good time, come aboard The Music Train, which departs from Bitton Station regularly. These are inclusive events for everyone, with discounted train tickets and an opportunity to listen to, and join in with, our talented musicians.

The Community Express also runs regular arts and crafts sessions for all ages at The Batch Community Centre in Cadbury Heath and Coniston Community Centre in Patchway. You don’t need any art skills – just bring your enthusiasm and the willingness to give it a go.
