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.

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 27 April 2021
The sessions will then occur every week after that for the foreseeable future.


  • 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.


If you are keen to come along then please email Martin and we will then register your interest and connect you to Bikeworks in the coming days. The first week sessions are nearly all booked up so get in contact soon to book your place

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.
