Cycling is definitely not just for the 'young and fit'! In fact, it's an ideal activity to enjoy as we get older, and can be extremely beneficial for people with various health issues. Coasters for All is WCCC's special programme of activities for older people, and for those with disabilities.
Coasters For All will be starting on Wednesday 3rd October 2018 with a group bike ride!
Meeting on Wednesdays from April to September, Coasters For All offers both professional cycling instruction and monthly group bike rides. Coasters For All is a joint initiative between Wadebridge Coasters CC, Concern Wadebridge and Cycle Training Cornwall. Our aim is to promote, facilitate and encourage cycling among older people, and also those with disabilities.
1. Group Bike Rides
First Wednesday of the month, departing from the Betjeman Centre at 10am
Coasters For All club rides are designed to be as accessible as possible and generally involve a gentle amble up and down the Camel Trail, including a refreshments stop.
Cyclists of ALL abilities are encouraged to take part, and every effort is made to include those with disabilities by making use of tricycles, tandems and other special cycling equipment.
These rides are free, but Regular Coasters For All participants are required to become members of Wadebridge Coasters CC which only costs £16 per year. This is not only essential for third party insurance cover, but also provides access to a growing and vibrant club with regular rides and social events such as barbecues, quiz nights etc.
2. Cycling Instruction
Other Wednesday mornings, meeting at the Betjeman Centre
Coasters For All offers a range of professional cycle instruction to help encourage people to get pedalling for the first time, or to get back on their bikes again, whatever your previous experience or current circumstances:
Coasters for All cycle training is subsidised, so we only ask for a small donation of £5 per session.
