Who needs to be assessed?

 

Anyone who feels they may need to use one of our specialist adaptive cycles to cycle comfortably and safely, should arrange an assessment.

Support needs may relate to a learning disability, a physical impairment or a balance and coordination difficulty. If you have support needs, you will likely need to be assessed before you can hire our cycles. This helps us to choose the best cycle for your needs.

Please email bookings@cardiffpedalpower.org.uk to book an assessment or give us a call.

 

How does an assessment take place?

You need to book an assessment in advance - please call us on 02920 390713 to do this. You (or your parent or guardian) will then need to complete the first page of our Assessment Form either before or on the day of the Assessment.

 

The assessment will take around half an hour to an hour. You'll be asked you about your cycling and health and wellbeing goals so we can assess which of our cycles is best for you.

 

What happens after the Assessment?

If you are a Member, the results will be recorded on our database so that every time you visit, we know what cycle and equipment you need.

What if I am not disabled but have not cycled for some time?

If you do not have specific support needs but it's been some time since you last cycled, we would recommend that you contact us to arrange a lesson. This will be focused on restoring your confidence to ride.

 

What if I am already a competent cyclist?

If you can already ride a bike and have no support needs, you can hire a bike without the need for an assessment.
