Came across Free Wheel by chance. Kids absolutely loved it. Plan to come back another day and will definitely tell others. Great work team!

I would love to see this service with more resources to allow them to continue serving the public in the east end of Glasgow. They contribute massively to reducing inequalities and providing a safe and welcoming place for the residents to take part with no constraints. The folk are wonderful who run this. Well done! May you continue to thrive and flourish.

Hello,

I am a primary teacher working within a nurture base within Miller Primary in Castlemilk. We have visited a couple of times now. Our children enjoy every aspect of the space, choices of things to ride, helpful staff. One of my children felt very anxious on the go kart and after a couple of tries is now fully confident! Our children always ask to come here when we are planning a trip out and the staff always make time to make us feel welcome. At times our children can become distressed or dysregulated and freewheelnorth never places judgement on any situation and always go the extra mile. We recently held a bake sale and our raised funds are for a donation to community cycle which we will be passing on at our next visit. Just wanted to pass on this feedback as it is well earned :)

 

Many Thanks

Our kids love Freewheel North and always ask to go the bike track @glasgow green. We have brought many friends and appreciate the work of the volunteers.

Hi Norman

 

A review of Free Wheel North, please feel free to use as you wish.

 

I was pointed in the direction of this wonderful charity by Cerebral Palsy Scotland while trying to source a trike for my three year old grandson over the Christmas period. What an amazing place! A cycle circuit in the middle of Glasgow Green which is fully accessible to those with disabilities. Staffed by an amazing group of people who are committed to making cycling inclusive for all. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful but also efficient and simply made things happen. The end result being one very happy boy out and about on a trike on his holidays. Fantastic! Thank you Norman and team, you are changing lives. I shall be spreading the word.

Cheers

Alison

Haven’t been since before covid but so glad my son reminded me of his good memories of being here! Brilliant to be back – great, helpful staff, great range of bikes and lively for them to get to try them all. We’ll be back and also recommended it to friends.

Thanks so much for keeping this facility going!

Julia plus 3 kids.
