Who needs to be assessed?

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 you, helping you to get the most out of your cycle. 


If you think you may want to hire one of our specialist bikes or trikes, you will need to become a Member first. You will then be given an Assessment by one of our friendly members of staff.

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 you can hire a bike from our general hire stock , and there will be no need for you to have an assessment.


How does an assessment take place?

An Assessment has to be arranged in advance - please call us 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.
