These clubs are for young people who want a safe space to practice, and we offer them to wheelchair users between 2 and 25 years.

This club is open to all, meaning that those full, part time and occasional wheelchair users; those who rely 1:1 support with skills and can’t self-propel; and those really advanced wheelchair users who want a safe space to practice wheelies, are all welcome!

For experienced wheelchair users: Share your skills, practice wheelies, accepting and declining help, mastering kerbs

For inexperienced wheelchair users: Stopping/starting, changing direction, managing speed, develop confidence, road safety, mastering different services

For assisted Wheelchair users: developing confidence, communication, directing your support to stop, start and change direction, body positioning
