Outdoor cycling
Why cycle hubs?
Riding on recumbent bikes builds strength, stimulates the brain and importantly provides a chance to meet with others.
How does it work?
Riders are first assessed by specialists from Royal Rehab Hospital. Once accessed riders can join our supervised group riding sessions. All recumbent bikes are provided on site.
What are the benefits?
Riding a recumbent bike can be a great form of exercise but it is far more than this for people with an acquired brain injury. As well as being fun, using the bikes helps:

  • Improve strength and endurance
  • Cognitive development through spatial awareness
  • Cognitive development through spatial awareness
  • Socially by providing opportunities to meet and build relationships with others.
  • The Hubs can also provide a meaningful pursuit where paid employment is not a possibility.
