Cycling Minds forms part of the person-centred care landscape, making a valuable contribution to fulfilling the NHS’s targets for social prescribing under its Comprehensive Model for Personalised Care. Our referrals team and mentors work with programme participants and social and health care providers to devise specific action plans best suited to each of the people we engage with, giving them the knowledge and confidence to manage their own mental and physical health through our eight-week Step On(e) guided e-bike ride programme which we also see as forming part of the NHS’s Five Steps to Mental Wellbeing. After completing the Step On(e) programme, participants will then be able to continue to cycle with us as part of our community cycle club.
The key proven outcomes of our work are a heightened sense of social inclusion, greater self-confidence and an increased likelihood of continuing to cycle.
We were recently handed an award by Cycling UK for Most Inspiring Community Cycle Club in the UK for 2023, , thanks to our “outstanding contribution” and “for achieving great things” getting more people in our local community out on bikes.
