Adapted cycling in CanterburySave this item
Wheel Potential is a Community Interest Company founded in 2016 that aims to provide an open-air cycling experience for less able adults in Canterbury, using a safe environment and adapted cycling machines. A small annual subscription supports the costs of repairs and maintenance.
New users will be given a short induction covering each machine and its characteristics, how to store each machine, where to find other equipment in the containers, how to use the machines safely and other administrative details and paperwork.
The machines are housed in two shipping containers in the municipal car park at Toddlers Cove in Canterbury, CT2 8BG. There are disabled parking bays next to the container and well-maintained disabled toilets on-site. In the summer there is a snack bar.
The Toddler’s Cove site benefits hugely from being situated at the very start of the so-called “Great Stour Way”, part of the longer National Cycle Route 18. The route runs for three miles west, closely adjacent to the River Stour to the riverside village of Chartham. It is a tailor-made walking and cycling route, wide enough to accommodate all such non-vehicular users. It is surfaced, off-road and flat as far as Chartham.
