In Spring 2019, Jim MacLachlan from TMBSS in Sundorne, Shrewsbury (a pupil referral unit that offers educational support for young people with medical and behavioural issues) with support from Energize established a new after-school cycling club.
Started in July 2018 the project aims to provide residents in some of the most deprived areas of Lancashire with a recycled bike to help encourage them to become active.
Inclusive Cycling in Bedfordshire & Luton goes from strength to strength with 90-100 adults with MLD-SLD & Physical Disabilities using the adapted bikes each month
A Better Tomorrow are an addiction recovery service that work with around 40 adult males to support their journey back into a ‘normal life’. Energize recognised that the addition of a sporting offer to the recovery process could aid peoples recovery and reduce the number of people that relapse during this period.
Over the past 9 months Active Devon, on behalf of Devon County Council, has delivered a successful pilot programme called ‘Active Mums Cycling’.
Active Mums Cycling in Devon is funded by Public Health, Devon Local Sustainable Transport Fund and Active Devon.
