Adapted cycling sessions using a range of bikes and trikes (provided) around an athletics track. Sessions are delivered in a safe and secure environment with support from leaders if required. Open to any young person with physical or sensory impairments, autism and/or learning difficulties. Children and young people can also bring their own bike if they would prefer.

Watersports (open age) – sessions delivered in partnership with our Outdoor Adventure team, offering children and young people the chance to try out a variety of watersports activities including kayaking, sailing and bell boating.

It’s great to see my daughter engaged in activity within a safe environment, where she can be herself and take part in the different activities.
