Ride Side-by-Side with Bikeworks and Metro Blind Sport

Ride Side-by-Side is about getting blind and partially sighted people around the West London area by pedalling (or choosing not to pedal) on e-cycles making trips of their choice, solving their transport problems, interacting socially, and most importantly, getting some exercise.

Thank you to the generosity of The Edward Gostling Foundation this project is fully funded and is free to those who attend the cycling sessions.

Metro Blind Sport has partnered with Bikeworks, to deliver Ride Side-by-Side to enable local blind and partially sighted residents in Kensington and Chelsea, Hammersmith and Fulham and the east of Ealing to make short trips, to keep appointments, visit the shops or make social visits on a Side-By-Side cycle, accompanied by a trained rider (pilot).

Date: Tuesday 18 May 2021


  • Session 1 is from 9.30 am until 11 am.
  • Session 2 is from 11.30 am until 1 pm.

Location:  West London.

Meeting place:

Various, as it could be people’s homes. If you are a resident in Kensington and Chelsea, Hammersmith and Fulham and the east of Ealing, then the Bikeworks pilot may come and collect you on the cycle from your home and drop you back again.

For those travelling to the area from other parts of London then the meeting place will be Latimer Road Tube Station.

Bikeworks are looking to arrange sessions in East London

Due to the popularity, Bikeworks are looking to arrange sessions in East London. If there are Metro Blind Sport members living in the boroughs of Tower Hamlets, Hackney, Newham or Waltham Forest who are interested in riding on the side-by-side cycle, please contact Nikki Ray from Bikeworks 07833 757954, and she will see if it’s possible to set up a group ride.

Ideally, a group ride around Olympic Park would be a really cool, off-road experience for our members. Individual rides may also be available, so please contact Nikki.
