Positive Spin sessions are free, fun, friendly cycle sessions for people with a diagnosis of dementia and their families and/or carers. It enables people with dementia and their family, friends & carers to cycle together and have fun. The sessions take place over a number of weeks in parks near a cafe. All-ability cycles as well as regular bicycles are provided. Specially trained Cycling Instructors are on hand to help people try out the different cycles and to take people on rides.
