These 'Come & Try' events are run by experienced hand cyclists and qualified coaching staff.  We welcome beginners and those without a bike, keen for another try. On the day we supply hand cycles, coaching and safety gear.  These events are relaxed affairs where you can do as much as you want, it’s about having a go in a fun and safe environment.

But don’t just take our word for it….
