Bikework’s role in disability sports

 

Bikework's Ben Preston

We were also joined this week by Ben Preston from Bikeworks. Bikeworks run all-ability clubs for people of all shapes and sizes, including those with disabilities. Ben has been overseeing the planning and delivery of these clubs since 2012. He spoke about how the clubs found their impetus in London 2012 and have not looked back, thanks to their growing participation and the vital contribution of volunteers. There are challenges in running these facilities, especially in the current funding climate, but there are also some unmistakable rewards.
