Free Wheel North
Free Wheel North is Scotland’s leading inclusive cycling charity, enabling thousands of people to enjoy outdoor space and exercise. Its projects embody the fundamental human right to health, clean air and access. Although focusing on people with disabilities ranging from multiple sclerosis to autism, no-one is excluded.
They have a dedicated team of cycle trainers with many years experience in delivering specialist group and individual instruction. They organise regular, safe and sociable group rides exploring Glasgow and its surroundings. Cyclists of all abilities are welcome to join their free rides. They have a cycling hub in Maryhill at Lock 21 with a bike repair workshop and regular group rides, suitable for beginners and for those looking to explore the cycle paths around Glasgow.
Their cycle track is open Monday-Friday 10am-5pm and Saturday-Sunday 12-5pm. It costs £1 for 15 minutes, £2 for 30 minutes and £3 for 45 minutes on the track.
Bikes are available for hire at both sites. They have a wide variety of adapted bikes, trikes, side by side, hand cranks, family bikes and go karts available for use at their dedicated track at Glasgow Green for £1 per person. They teach and encourage people of all ages and abilities to cycle.
