Bikes For All

In partnership with COMO UK, Cycling Scotland and Glasgow Centre for Population health, Wheelbeing is now running a ground breaking socially inclusive project called Bikes for All. 

Bikes for All offers annual membership to the city wide bike hire scheme Nextbike for just £3.  The aim is to tackle inequalities by providing low cost access to bikes and reducing barriers to cycling for first time riders.  With particularly focus on encouraging women and people from ethnic minorities to cycle, we also offer confidence boosting road skill sessions and wider community engagement.

Youth Wheelbeing

  

The Youth Wheelbeing project is aimed at young adults between the ages of 18 and 25 to help increase their physical activity and mental wellbeing, by introducing cycling into their everyday lives. We are working in partnership with youth organisations to set up self-sustaining cycling groups ran by young people. We support them to access a bike and the project includes a City & Guilds mechanic qualification and ride leader training.

Did you know?

Cycling as a means of transport is one of the easiest ways to fit exercise into your daily routine. It’s a low impact sport which gets you fit whilst putting very little stress on your joints. Plus, it can save you money and is good for the environment!

Our Wheelbeing team helps people to improve their health and cycle more by supporting communities and organisations to set up self-sustaining cycle groups and organise open social rides. We can also help with Nextbike subscriptions for those without bikes.

Interested in joining a group but want to gain more confidence in 1:1 sessions first? Want to create your own cycling group in your area?
