To ensure our adapted cycling sessions are as inclusive as possible we need to expand our range of adapted cycles.

ho are we?

We are The Cornwall Bicycle Project CIC Profits from our activities provide cycling equipment and cycling opportunities to all, with a particular focus on reaching those from disadvantaged backgrounds in Cornwall. 

We believe that everyone deserves a chance to have a cycling journey whether it is for transport, physical & mental health, socialising, competing or just being able to discover the enjoyment that riding a bike can bring. 

We provide inclusive cycling lessons, courses and events in Cornwall. Including regular social rides, educational programmes for all ages: Bikeability, Learn to Ride; Confidence / skills booster sessions, Mountain Biking, Race Events, Learn to Fix Sessions and Adapted Cycling!  

We are excited to be partnered with the British Cycling's LIMITLESS Programme and Wheels for All, Parkinson's Excellence Network and work alongside many NHS social prescribers and local community groups.

Our organization's dedication to inclusivity and partnerships reflects a commitment to enhancing the well-being of the community through the transformative power of cycling.

Why are we crowdfunding?

We have  small range of adapted cycles but to ensure our sessions are even more inclusive and can provide opportunity for as many people as possible to ride a bike we need to expand our range of bikes and trikes so that all ages and abilities can ride and  discover the joy that riding a bike can bring.

How we’ll spend the money raised

Community impact

Once riders have gained confidence and found a cycle to fit the individual we are able to progress to even more cycling adventures in our local areas. Exploring trails, seeing new places and making new friends.
