Are a not-for-profit Charitable organisation, all-ability cycling club based at Longford Park Athletic Stadium
The club was set up in 2004 with encouragement from Manchester City Council’s Leisure Services Disability Development as an inclusive cycling club where disabled people come first.
In May 2010 Trafford Wheelers was formed
The main focus is to offer cycling to disabled people. They have over 180 adapted bikes and are confident that anyone can ride a bike regardless of their ability. They offer sessions throughout the week that are open to the public, catering for cyclists of all abilities.
The sessions are about recreational cycling where people can focus on fun and the health benefits of riding bikes.
