Disability cycling

Open Country

This project aims to help disabled people in Wakefield access the countryside. Working from Thornes Park in Wakefield, they are now running evening tandem rides, a weekday walking group, regular nature conservation projects, producing countryside access information and much more! If you would like to join in the fun, either as a disabled participant or by helping out as a volunteer, you can contact the Open Country office on 01423 507227.
