“Our new all ability cycling sessions will allow people with mobility issues, physical or learning disabilities a safe and supported environment to learn and improve their cycling, also creating the opportunity weekly to meet up with old and new friends along the way as the strap line says “Let’s all Cycle””.

An East Ayrshire Council spokesperson added: “All Ability sports day is open to teenagers and adults with additional support needs, during the session they will get the opportunity to also play a variety of sports supported by staff from Cumnock juniors community enterprise and vibrant communities for £1 donation per week.”
