HIGHLAND CYCLE ABILITY CENTRE
“With our range of adapted bikes and the safety of the track we are the perfect place for cyclists of all abilities e.g. able-bodied, physically disabled, ASD, learning disabilities, sensory disabilites etc. Regular sessions are available throughout the week Mondays to Fridays from 9am – 4pm.
Helping disabled riders is at the forefront of what we do. Due to their disability, circumstances or other people’s assumptions, many disabled people may never have had the opportunity to ride a bike. We are here to help change that, because we feel that not only is cycling a fantastic way for people with disabilities to keep fit, it also offers an important social experience”

‘We have a unique mission, to give people of mixed abilities and circumstances the freedom to explore their ability, potential and place in the world through inclusive adventures at sea.
In a wild, unpredictable and challenging environment, people discover new personal depths. That is true for everyone, because the sea does not discriminate. On our ships people engage in a continuous, residential experience and live in close quarters. They are often disconnected from elements of modern life. That means that people are more present in the moment and their learning experience is accelerated. We give everyone responsibilities that have real consequences. People learn that risky activities can be safe when managed responsibly. Our tall ships are uniquely accessible and are crewed by a diverse community of mixed abilities, circumstances and ages. On JST voyages social, demographic and physical barriers are broken down and disability and disadvantage fade into the background.’

The SDGC was created in January 2018 and is a Registered Scottish Charity. This brand new charity brought together two previously well established groups, the Scottish Disability Golf Partnership (established in 2004) and the Disabled Curlers Scotland (established in 2014), to provide and develop year-round sports opportunities for disabled people across the country.
