Cycling Day at the Scarisbrick Centre

The Scarisbrick Centre is an in-patient unit at Ormskirk District General Hospital. It provides care and treatment for adult service users showing signs of mental illness.

About This Project

“This is Just the beginning for us and we have more ideas and future plans to come.”

 

The Scarisbrick Centre is an in-patient unit at Ormskirk District General Hospital. It provides care and treatment for adult service users showing signs of mental illness.

 

Go Velo held an introduction to cycling day at the centre.

 

A range of people attended this course, including service users, doctors, nurses, students, occupational therapy and support workers.

 

Consequently, this meant there was a range of cycling abilities among the attendees, from people who had never ridden, or had not done so since childhood, to keen, regular riders.

 

Go Velo worked closely with David and Oliver, two employees of the centre who had gained a Ride Leadership award from the British Cycling Association. They were now fully trained and insured for delivering and leading rides of either eight riders each, or 16 jointly.

The Cycling Day followed on closely from their training, to help lay the groundwork for future cycling activity and participation at the centre.

 

 

What the Cycling Day Involved

 

The morning session of the cycling day focused on bike maintenance, including

fixing punctures, checking brakes and gears.

 

The afternoon session was all about teaching new cycling skills, and refreshing the skills of riders who hadn’t used a bike for a while.

 

The aim of the cycle training was to encourage participation for everyone, and to build confidence and raise awareness of road safety.

 

On the day, Go Velo provided all the bikes and safety equipment used by participants in the course.

“Since the cycling day, we’ve been able to arrange inclusive bike rides with some of our service users, who’ve been wanting activities to help with their physical and mental health and wellbeing. We’ve been getting some incredible feedback from them.”
