If you are keen to come along to one or more of the sessions, please contact Nikki Ray from Bikeworks 07833 757954


Thanks to the generosity of the London Mayor’s Sport Unites fund, this project is free to those who attend the cycling sessions.

Metro Blind Sport have teamed up with @bikeworksuk to deliver an awesome new opportunity for visually impaired people to get riding side-by-side 🙌

The service collects participants from either Latimer Road Station in West London or from their home if they live locally 🚊 🏡

The adapted bike designed by @van_raam is electronically assisted with trained riders from @bikeworksuk leading, along with optional pedal power from passengers.

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.
