Transition University of St Andrews are working with partners Fabb and Scottish Disability Sport to provide a free trial of adapted cycles for those living and working in the St Andrews area, starting on Wednesday 18th August and running every Wednesday until the 6th October (except 1st September). There are three sessions per day (10:30am – 11:30am, 12:30pm – 01:30pm, 02:00pm – 03:00pm) and you are free to attend as many as you like.
For over 60 years, Fabb has been giving disabled children and young people freedom, friendships and fun. Thousands of young people, their families and friends have benefitted from what we do. Thousands of disabled young people across Scotland have been introduced to cycling through Blazing Saddles. This incredible project, formed by Fabb in 2015, gives people the chance to ride unique and bespoke bikes and is designed to give disabled people as much freedom as possible.
People who can’t ride a bike can try a range of adapted bikes through this project gaining confidence, physical activity and a sense of achievement. A range of bikes will be provided and support workers/carers/friends and families are also welcome to participate.
