Life Cycle UK's Bike Minded

"Well-being through cycling"

Who We Are


Bike Minded has a hugely positive impact on the lives of our participants: 100% record a positive impact on their mental well being; 85% feel fitter and healthier and 79% say they now socialise more.

"As a disabled adult and long-time user of mental health services it's been really empowering to get an affordable bike, go on rides, meet other people and get some exercise. It’s built my confidence...I am using my bike to get around town and I've signed up for a maintenance course so I can do repairs. It has been very beneficial for my health and well being" – Ryan (name changed)

Who is it for?

Our rides are open to anyone who would like to improve or maintain their well-being. People join up for different reasons and they can disclose as much information as they want to when they register. Some people might want to reduce stress, anxiety or depression, others might be keen to meet new people or improve their confidence. All abilities welcome.
