Wheels for Wellbeing - British Cycling

Wheels for Wellbeing

British Cycling is proud to work with Wheels for Wellbeing across London. Advice and support from Wheels for Wellbeing is helping us in our partnership work with 14 London Boroughs, as we ensure our rides and programmes are enjoyed by the widest possible audience. Members of the Wheels for Wellbeing team joined British Cycling and Sky partners at a special ride in Regent’s Park with World Champion Mark Cavendish. The ‘Cav ride’ provided a high profile opportunity to promote the hundreds of free, informal Sky Ride Local rides we’re offering in London this summer so that everyone inspired by the Olympic and Paralympic Games has the opportunity to get involved.
