The Cork Sports Partnership in collaboration with St. Josephs Foundation Charleville organised a 5 week safer cycling programme for 15 adults with intellectual disabilities. This is the first time the Safer Cycling programme has been delivered to a disability service in Cork. The programme began with a ‘taster session’ where the tutor hosted an introductory session to assess participant abilities and also for participants to try out the activity. At the end of the pilot programme an evaluation was carried out by the Sports Inclusion Disability Officer with participants on the programme, the tutor and staff of St. Joseph’s foundation. The aim of the evaluation was to assess how the programme can be further adapted and improved and to inform any future safer cycling programmes which will be rolled out to people with disabilities in the future.
