Positive Spin sessions are free, fun, friendly cycle sessions for people with a diagnosis of dementia and their families and/or carers. There is no need to be able to cycle to take part (you can simply turn up to look and chat if you'd rather not cycle). All-ability bikes as well as regular bikes are provided.


Here are the dates for the Positive spin sessions in Lambeth and Hackney over the summer.

How can I join?

If you'd like to take part you can simply drop-in. There is no need to book.The sessions take place in parks near a cafe. People with dementia, their families and carers are all welcome. People can have fun trying out regular or specially adapted bikes (or simply have a chat and coffee).

*On the 18th and 19th of May we will be supporting Dementia Awareness Week.

We also take bikes to care homes/community centres in Hackney and Lambeth so people can have fun cycling at their home.

'What a brilliant sense of freedom it was to ride around in the sunshine. I never dreamed that I would be riding around once more at nearly 70 years old! I feel on top of the world!'
