Company Description

Pedal Power:
We’re a charity based in Cardiff that encourages and enables children and adults of all ages and abilities to experience the benefits of cycling. We strive to remove the barriers to cycling that many people face and work to a key set of values.

Though the benefits of walking and cycling to people’s health are well recognised, many of us fail to get the exercise and regular physical activity that we need. Think how much harder it is to exercise if you are disabled and equipment and facilities are not geared to your needs. Imagine how isolating it can be not to be able to undertake exercise alongside friends and family.
