Inclusive Cycling for All 

.Fun - Fresh Air - Exercise

WFA sessions have now re-started but please pre-book a slot so we can limit the number of people present at any one time and maintain 2m social distancing.   We are currently allowing up to 8 cycles on the track at any one time.   If you wish to discuss booking a 1 hr slot, please email us (see Contact Page) .  Our leaders and volunteers will assist participants from 2m distance so are not at present able to provide any physical support.  Our current Guidelines for the sessions can be seen here.

If you'd like to be added to our mailing list to be kept up to date, please let us know.

The Wheels for All - Oxford Leaders are now able to offer bespoke cycle training on a one-to-one basis (or very small groups) - whether teaching you to cycle, improving your cycling skills and confidence, or leading a group of people on a cycle ride. 


Whatever your goals, we will help you achieve them.  Many of our lessons are sponsored by Active Oxfordshire and other grants which enable them to be provided free of charge. See our Training Page for more information

  Wheels for All - Oxford provide cycling services for a wide range of people (16+) - we aim to make it inclusive so it really is for 'all'.  Our Friday    morning sessions are attended by a wide range of people:


  • Some of our participants come with a carer or other supporter
  • Others are independent and come to the session on their own or with a friend
  • Some are recovering from an accident or learning how to cycle with an impairment and want to try out a variety of cycles
  • Others come because they haven't cycled for a long time and want to practice to build their confidence
  • Some of our older participants come to enjoy cycling with a friend or partner, especially if one of them is less able
  • All of our participants come for the fun, fresh air and exercise in an outdoor environment


Have a look at the photos of people enjoying our Friday morning sessions.

"Jamie enjoys the sense of independence cycling gives him, its something he can do on his own and at his own pace. He loves the fact that he is doing exercise which he knows is good for him and he enjoys seeing familiar friendly faces too.  He really looks forward to his visits on Fridays."

"I love to come here as I like to cycle very much.  I am also very fond of a lot of people here and the music adds to an exciting atmosphere" Ben

"I really look forward to my Friday morning WFA sessions. All the volunteers are very helpful and friendly. I find open-air exercising not only physically but also mentally and emotionally very stimulating. When growing up I never learnt to ride a bike and now, as a blind person, cycling gives me a sense of freedom." Sevita

We provide inclusive cycling facilities for all in a safe supportive environment, come and join the fun!

Wheels for All - Oxford provides facilities for people with a wide variety of needs aged 16+ to enjoy cycling every Friday morning  on the Athletics Track, Horspath Road, Oxford.


It is part of a national all-inclusive cycle initiative developed by Cycling Projects with the aim of making cycling accessible to all with a particular focus on offering fun. There is a wide range of bikes available during the session including a wheelchair transporter, several tricycles, a quad, side by sides, a tandem, hand cycles, e-bike and several 2 wheel bikes.


The service users generally come with a carer or support from their school or club and the session offers an opportunity to socialise for everyone attending but independent users are also very welcome.


The activity is being both physically and cognitively stimulating; for some service users this is the only opportunity for physical activity open to them.


Come and join the fun!  We try to run sessions whatever the weather but if it is really bad we occassionaly have to cancel (announced by email, facebook, Twitter etc on the morning)


If you have any question or require further information please contact us.
