About Solihull Wheels for All

Find out what we are all about!

Registered Charity number : 1181993.

Based in Solihull, we welcome people from all areas. We have a whole age range & variety of service users from people who want to learn to ride a bicycle, people who want to re build their confidence of cycling in a traffic free environment to people who, for varying reasons, didn’t think they would be able to ride a bike. We have a range of adaptive bikes that allows people with physical disabilities or learning disabilities / difficulties or general mobility issues, to also join in with the sessions.

We offer open sessions where everyone cycles together. This enables whole families who escort a person they care for, to join in an activity together. It can often prove difficult to find activities where everyone can join in together.
We also work closely with other organisations that support people, young people and children with specific needs. Such as SENSE, for service users with visual and hearing impairments and often with disabilities or difficulties. We work with Headway Birmingham and Solihull for service users with acquired brain injuries; and local services from day centres and community care groups and support workers for both adults & children with special needs.
We run privately booked sessions for children & young people with local special needs schools. We also support those using exercise as part of weight loss or post-operative and cardiac rehabilitation programmes or have mental health issues.
The sessions are run by experienced instructors and support from volunteers . We have links with Solihull Cycling Club who provide volunteer support.

We have volunteers from the local community as well as young people from the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. We have also linked with the local services that support placements of young people with learning disabilities and thus support these young people in gaining skills through their volunteering that may be transferred into a work placement.
The project is extremely rewarding to be part of and provides an activity that helps people to improve their fitness and mental health as well as providing an opportunity for new friendships thus helping to reduce social isolation.
We are a Charity Incorporated Organisation and rely on donations and charity fund raising to buy equipment and bikes and adaptive bikes and therefore have to charge for our sessions (See prices on main website page). Our mission statement is:
“To promote inclusive community participation in healthy recreation through cycling for the benefit of those living or working within Solihull and surrounding areas; so as to Support disabled people, young people and to increase their participation in society and enable social inclusion. Support people of all abilities and ages to adopt healthier lifestyles so as to improve their quality of life. “

We have a range of adaptive bikes ranging from two wheeled bikes to tandems, tricycles, social side by side bikes, side by side hand bike and a wheelchair transporter bike. Alongside a fleet of a range of two wheeled bicycles.

Everyone is welcome to come along and try … Cycling really is an activity for EVERYONE!
