Friends of Pedal Power Project

Pedal Power is a cycling charity that encourages and enables everyone to cycle. It look at ways to encourage the public - whatever age or ability to try or return to cycling.

Founded 2002

  • Mission statement

    Making cycling accessible to people of all ages and abilities. Pedal Power opens 7 days a week and has a large selection of trikes and accessories. Trained staff assess all new disabled cyclists. Staff and volunteers prepare the trikes and assist the cyclist to get onto the trike. This cycling opportunity is the only form of exercise that many have, and cyclists gain confidence and enjoy the the countryside with their friends and family. Group cycling sessions provide support for those who do not have the confidence to cycle independently. Volunteers are the lifeblood of the organisation. Pedal Power is working towards financial sustainability by operating a general cycle hire, cycle repair service, recycles bikes, and offers cycle training.
