Who are we and what do we do?

SRCC is a unique Inclusive Cycling Centre in Scarborough that benefits the communities of Scarborough and Ryedale. Our objective is to provide cycling opportunities for anyone with a disability, including those with temporary disabilities, the elderly, those who suffer from dementia or isolation and indeed anyone else who wishes to gain the health benefits which cycling can provide.

 

This is run as a non-profit-making scheme. We offer the whole community the opportunity to engage in the benefits of cycling at a low cost.

 

Our instructors are highly experienced and have qualifications from Bikeability and MIAS (mountain biking) amongst other organisations. The instructors possess valid DBS clearance and have successfully completed courses in dementia awareness, safeguarding children, College of Policing Channel Awareness and others.

 

We run a bike club scheme which engages with local youngsters to encourage them to channel their energies into biking activities. We are mobile, so are able to transport bikes to sessions in Dalby Forest, along the Scarborough seafront, on the "cinder track" and others. We have free "taster days" which exhibit adapted bikes such as tandems, hand-cranked bikes, adult trikes, side-by-side trikes, wheelchair bikes, electric bikes, recumbent bikes and also standard bikes to try out under the supervision of our trained instructors.

 

If you are interested in such activities either for yourself or your organisation and you require further information then please email or call Rob or Pete (see Contact page).

Since our first event at Gallows Close in December 2014 we have run over 200 events at a variety of locations including Woodlands Academy, Dalby Forest, Whitby West Cliff and Sports Centre, North Bay, the Cinder Track, Oliver's Mount and the University campus.

 

We have travelled to York to contribute to the Dialysis Games and have put on a display at the Great Yorkshire Show. We loved the Tour de Yorkshire and the part we played in 2015, 2016 and 2017 - even if it was only for "the last mile"! Our TV appearances on BBC Look North have been a great opportunity to raise awareness of our project which will hopefully encourage more people to enjoy this great pastime with us.

 

All this could not have been achieved without our brilliant volunteers who have committed so many hours of their valuable time. A big thank you to all of them.  We have further exciting plans in mind - we look forward to seeing you!
