It's National Bike Week! We're going to have plenty to share with you about inclusive cycling over the course of this week, so look out for it on our social media.
It's the perfect time to enjoy some cycling, and lots of people have been enjoying the outdoors on their bikes over the past couple of months. What are your favourite spots and routes? Have you found any particularly accessible places to cycle?I have a couple of favourite spots around Cheltenham that I like to cycle. I have always loved the Honeybourne Line, a nice stretch of cycle path between Leisure At and Cheltenham Spa train station. You can do the whole length of it or, if you want to stick to a completely flat path you can cycle between Waitrose and the train station. I have cycled the length of it both on a recumbent trike and a hand cycle (powered by my arms) - it is a gradual incline if you start at the Leisure At end, and continuing along it you have to go over the bridge before you get to Waitrose. Great fun cycling the other way though, just keep in control of the brakes!
Cycling around Pittville Park is also a lovely route, and there is a Changing Places toilet there so you don't have to worry about needing an accessible toilet when you're out and about.
