On Yer Bike
Cedar’s cycling projects support people with disabilities to get more active. We run the On Yer Bike Kidz project and support the On Yer Bike Cycling Club. We have a range of specialised cycling equipment which allow people with a range of disabilities, including mobility and visual impairments to enjoy and confidently participate in cycling.
The On Yer Bike Cycling Club was set up in August 2015 in Belfast and now has 45 members who meet regularly to cycle using our fleet of accessible bicycles. Club members use the Mary Peter’s track and other off-road facilities to get involved in accessible cycling to improve their physical fitness and general health & well-being. Club members are working hard to develop its membership base and, alongside Cedar’s Sports Office, have devised a club development plan to ensure its continued success and growth. The club has three trained coaches and 5 volunteers, many of whom participated in the original On Yer Bike cycling proficiency project, and is affiliated with Disability Sport NI.
Our “On Yer Bike Kidz” project aims to promote healthy living and increase physical activity among young people with disabilities in Belfast by delivering cycling proficiency training. It is funded through Active Belfast (a Belfast Strategic Partnership signature initiative) and we deliver a range of cycling proficiency classes in schools across Belfast including Fleming Fulton and Mitchell House. Through the On Yer Bike Kidz project and with some additional support from Cash for Kids, we have been able to expand our fleet of bicycles to include smaller bikes for children & young people and a range of accessibility options.
