In 2016 the existing network of six hubs welcomed over 1,000 riders to traffic free locations across the country and these new sites will help to provide more accessible coaching at inspiring cycle sport sites in the capital.

Paralympic gold medallist, Megan Giglia, commented on the news: “British Cycling opening a couple of new disability hubs in the spring is a really exciting opportunity because it is promoting disability sport and cycling.

Disability hub sessions are organised and delivered by British Cycling coaches on dedicated cycling facilities, offering support for people with disabilities to improve their fitness, technique and confidence.
