Pedal power: participants on the Horsham Wheels for All annual fund-raising bike ride from Shoreham to Horsham, using the Downslink cycle route.

The club welcomes all ages and abilities and encourages use of a wide range of adapted bikes, with instruction from the county council’s Bikeability team.

A Bikeability spokesperson said: “Despite the unsettled weather, the club had a great turnout on its annual fund-raising bike event, with riders covering distances of between one and 15 miles.

“This was the second, successive year the club has covered the route and this time the ride was all about progress, with some members doubling the distances they covered in 2017.

“Some people were also riding sections independently of support for the first time.”

As well as an effort to raise the club’s profile and seek new members, Wheels for All also aims to raise funds to go towards a new, side-by-side hand cycle.
