British Cycling will open its 11th HSBC UK Disability Hub in Middlesbrough.

Middlesbrough Sports Village will begin running monthly sessions from 10th November, with the final session of 2018 confirmed for 1st December.

So far in 2018, the existing network of ten hubs has welcomed over 1,100 riders to traffic-free locations across the country.

Disability hub sessions are organised and delivered by British Cycling coaches at dedicated cycling facilities, offering support for people with a physical or learning disability to improve their fitness, technique and confidence.

Jack Rees, British Cycling club and coaching officer, said: “The opening of this disability hub in Middlesbrough is a great addition to the brilliant work already taking place at other hub locations across the country.

“We are very pleased to be expanding the programme to Middlesbrough, where riders are able to develop their skills in a fun and enjoyable environment, making cycling a part of their lives.”

Luke Harper, HSBC UK’s head of the British Cycling partnership, said: “Our partnership with British Cycling is very much focused on grassroots activity, and it is important to give people the opportunity to get on a bike for the first time, develop their skills or improve their fitness.

“We are proud to be part of this new disability hub, providing support to those in and around Middlesbrough who may not have had the opportunity through cycling before.”

With adapted equipment such as hand cycles, tandems, trikes and bikes to support a range of impairments, riders do not need to bring their own bike.
