Freedom for York’s elder community

Your support helps us continue to offer our Cycling Without Age Rides in a rickshaw bike to the elder community, pedalled by local volunteers. Over the last 2 years, we have offered Rides to over 150 York care home residents. People like Joyce, aged 92 from Lamel Beeches care home, who said “It’s my freedom!.

The joy of cycling for everyone in York

Support like yours enables us to support people of all ages and abilities into cycling as part of our Cake Confidence start cycling scheme. Over the last 3 years, we have supported over 400 York residents into a cycling lifestyle. People like Rose, with restricted mobility, who said “Bike Belles really have changed my life!“.

The wonder of nature nearby

With your support, we can continue our Nature Time Walks and Rides for local people such as Gabi (pictured). Time spent outdoors tuning into the natural world in green spaces has been proven to help wellbeing.

Walk and cycle with us into a healthy, green and kind future! York Bike Belles is a award-winning charitable organisation, incorporated as a Community Interest Company, Number 12470154.
