About Cycle Happy Club

Trikes are fun.  

Based in Sheffield, UK, our club aims to promote cycling for people with learning difficulties, encouraging health and well-being. We meet to ride at Forge Valley Cycle Circuit (Forge Valley School S6 5HG) most Fridays from 20th April until October. This year we are lucky to have British Cycling coaches Rob Mace and Linda Pagdin to lead the exercises and share their experience.

What we do

  • Meet to ride on the track most Fridays at 6pm.
  • Bring your own machine or borrow from the Forge Valley bike library.
  • Our club has trikes you can use - good if you can't ride a bike or just want to try something different.
  • We also have dedicated balance bikes if you want to learn to ride a bike .
  • We may be able to offer rides on a tandem or tag-along - fun, but also good to get the idea of what cycling feels like.
  • There is a social aspect as well. Cycle Happy Club provides an opportunity to meet up, breath some fresh air and do some exercise.
  • Parents & carers can ride too - some have commented how nice it is to be able to join in the activities rather than sit around the edges just watching.
  • Note that our club is growing and we have a limited number of specialist trikes/bikes so if you do recommend our club to others please ask them to contact us first, the last thing we want is disappointed young cyclists.

Coming up...

  • Evening light is fading now, so Friday 27th September will be our last track session this year .
  • New Club Tandem see the gallery for photos.


Forge Valley cycle circuit is a purpose-built closed track, about 1km in length, just perfect for us to train on. No traffic, no obstacles - just an open road. Whether you are a proficient cyclist or tricyclist or learning to ride it's fun just to ride around without the worry of traffic. There is a gentle slope at one end which is just right for balance-bike practise. If you want to ride charges are £2.00 for children and £3.00 for adults - bring your own machine, share or borrow from the Forge Valley bike library.
