Pure Innovations and Bury Wheels for All

Posted on the 19th November 2019

Go guys, go!  What a brilliant new partnership:  Pure Innovations and Bury Wheels for All! We are working in tandem with (see what we did there?) to run this excellent inclusive cycling facility in Clarence Park.

Wheels For All

 Wheels for All is a nationally recognised programme that enables children and adults with disabilities and differing needs, to enjoy the fun and health benefits of cycling.

It provides a range of  specially adapted cycles including side-by-side two seaters, large trikes and cycles powered by hand “pedals”. The weekend service in Bury has closed for the winter but Pure clients are continuing to man the facility on Mondays and Thursdays. Of course there is always time for a little fun too. Take a look.

Individuals, groups and their families are all welcome to use this service. Any bike can be hired for just £3 per person and this of course includes a safety cycle helmet. There are two routes around the park: a short one and a longer one.

How Pure Innovations Clients Help

Pure clients assist at Bury Wheels for All in many ways including:

  • checking paths and clearing them of any hazardous debris
  • putting up caution signs informing the public that cyclists may be using paths
  • unlocking bikes that are to to be used and re-securing them later
  • customer service including accepting monies
  • assisting with basic bike maintenance

This week Pure Community Support Worker Simon Nicholls was demonstrating the correct way to pump tyres up to the correct pressure – a very useful skill for all bike owners.

Pure supported clients are really enjoying helping out here. They include Michael who owns his own bike and frequently cycles to the Jonathan Burns Centre for the range of other supported activities  we run there.

I love it here. Bikes are good. They keep you fit. I love being outside. It's good.
