PEDALL is run by the charity Friends of PEDALL and the New Forest National Park Authority, supported by the NHS, the charity SCARF and Colton Care. It is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, Sport England and British Cycling. PEDALL provides inclusive cycling in and around the beautiful New Forest and aims to make cycling available to anyone no matter what challenges they may face.
PEDALL provides cycling sessions for people who face a barrier to accessing cycling on the New Forest off-road cycle network. A barrier is anything that prevents someone from being able to cycle without additional support, it includes:
Economic, cultural and social challenges
Physical and intellectual disabilities
Special educational need
Recovering from injury or illness
Anything else that prevents someone from being able to cycle
PEDALL, originally called New Forest Inclusive Cycling, was started in 2011 by the New Forest National Park Authority and New Forest District Council with a grant from Hampshire County Council’s Inspiring You fund.
