Sefton Council has marked the 10th anniversary of its successful cycling initiative – Wheels for All.
The scheme offers a wide range of cycles to enable almost everyone to enjoy cycling whatever their age, ability or needs.
Equipment available includes tandems, tricycles, hand cycles and wheelchair accessible cycles.
To help residents to get the most out of cycling, staff and carer training is available for anyone who would like to access the bikes.
Sefton has worked with partners Cycling Projects and CTC to offer the popular scheme across the borough.
Mayor of Sefton, Cllr Kevin Cluskey, said: “My chosen theme for the Mayoral year is ‘Health through Cycling’ and I’m very proud to be the Mayor of Sefton to celebrate the 10th anniversary of ‘Wheels for All’. This is a fantastic scheme that gets everyone cycling.”
Cllr Paul Cummins, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Older People and Health, said: “It’s fantastic that we are celebrating the success of this excellent scheme. Regular cycling can help you lose weight, reduce stress and improve your fitness.
“It’s one of the easiest ways to incorporate physical activity into your daily routine because it’s also a form of transport so can save you money, get you fit and its good for the environment.”
