You Can Bike Too

You Can Bike Too

You Can Bike Too offers inclusive cycling sessions at Milton Country Park. They have a large selection of adapted bikes and welcomes all abilities, both children and adults. Please see CTCs guide to adapted cycles for more information.    

About the centre 

You can bike too is an award winning, Cycling UK affiliated centre. It is a community project supported and funded by many partners which includes Children in need, South Cambridgeshire district council, Girton town charity, Cycling Projects charity, Cambridge city council and the You Can Hub.   

 

The centre began with Aaron's wish. His wish was to cycle with his family and friends, to experience the wind on his face as he pedalled to freedom and independence. He met Ruth, a keen Cambridge cyclist and incredible people connector, who helped Aaron fulfil his dream. Importantly the team who made the project happen are people with learning difficulties and mixed abilities, and their aim is for the whole community to use it!  

 

Milton Country Park covers 95 acres and is located north-east of Cambridge city centre. It is built on old gravel pits and provides a natural habitat for wildlife, with large water pools and wetland areas, meadowlands, a play area and many pathways for horses riders, walkers, cyclists and wheelchair users. There is a full programme of regular and special events held at the park throughout the year too.
