British Cycling launches twelfth UK disability hub to promote accessible sport
Helping disabled people in the West Midlands access sport, British Cycling has announced the launch of its twelfth HSBC UK Disability Hub, in Stourport.
Since their establishment in 2014, the Disability Hubs have seen more than 5,000 riders in traffic-free locations throughout the UK and the new Stourport site will help provide more accessible coaching sessions to people with disabilities.
Disability hub sessions are organised and delivered by British Cycling coaches at dedicated cycling facilities, helping people with disabilities improve their fitness.
British Cycling’s Cycling Delivery Manager for the West Midlands, Amy Gardner, said: “This new opening marks an exciting new chapter for our ever-expanding network of HSBC UK Disability Hubs.
“We are very pleased to be expanding the programme to the West Midlands for the first time, where riders are able to develop their skills in a fun and enjoyable environment, making cycling a part of their lives. I’m looking forward to seeing first-hand the successes of this twelfth hub in Stourport.”
Adapted equipment at the Hubs includes handcycles, tandems, trikes and bikes to support a range of different needs.
