Wheels for Wellbeing, a UK program, helps get people with physical disabilities cycling and challenges conventional notions that equate their mobility with automobile dependency.

Using tricycles, handcycles and recumbent cycles, participants discover that there are options for nearly anyone to enjoy the freedom of cycling. For these folks, the health benefits that come with their improved mobility can be particularly powerful in treating their illnesses.
