Next taster day 29th April 10am - 2pm

What is the Taster day all about?


The taster day is a great way to find out all about the charity, what we do, and who we are but also to give the opportunity for you to try out several different adapted bicycles or tricycles and get a feel for some of the many options and adaptations that are possible. You can do as little or as much cycling as you like, in a safe and easy to ride environment whilst being fully supported by several support riders or runners at all times if needed.

I haven’t ridden a bike for a very long time or ever before, should I come?


Absolutely! We are not trying to attract seasoned cyclists, and I myself had not ridden a bike for many years before I went to my first taster day. In fact, due to my condition I did not think It would ever be possible to ride a bike again.

We are very used to looking at every person’s individual needs and can help you see the possibilities that are available.

The taster days are very much a social gathering and there is plenty of opportunities to sit and chat with many of the EMpowered riders with lots of stories to tell.

 

 

Where is the Taster Day?


We host our Taster days within Centre Vale Park, Todmorden on the West Yorkshire / Lancashire Border.  

For Satnav directions, the best postcode is use is OL14 7BS

The park is a lovely open grass area with surrounding wide tarmacked paths perfectly suitable for cycling and walkers.

Our base for the day will be the ‘Fielden centre’, which is a lovely cosy and warm historic hall adjacent to the Park. The hall is easily accessible for wheelchairs and there are disabled accessible toilets inside.

 

What do I need to bring?

Safety helmets and high-visibility vests are provided for all riders so just bring yourself your friends, carers or any family members you wish. There will be snacks and drinks available on the day (all proceeds go towards the charity). A warm coat may be a good idea as well!

Please note we ask for a £2 donation per person

We really look forward to meeting you and having a fun time.
