The disability cycling club at the University of Bradford will use Team GB training bikes for a 24 hour cycling challenge to raise money for the Cycling 4 All club this week.

Adam Tasker, Disability Support Worker at the University, set-up the UK's first disability cycling club and, with the help of four Team GB training bikes, he and others will aim to ride 1500 miles whilst raising funds to ensure the club continues in 2013.

Adam Tasker, Disability Support Worker, University of Bradford said: "Cycling 4 All provides a much needed sports and social club for disabled students at the University, promoting inclusion, engagement and enhancing the student experience for those with disabilities. Every week we hold free sessions, with trips to Lister Park, where bikes for all abilities are provided free of charge."

The Watt bikes used by Team GB have been supplied by British Cycling at the Manchester Velodrome. The bikes will be static and electronically linked to allow progress to be recorded.

The team will begin their challenge at 4pm in the Atrium located in the Richmond Building at the University of Bradford on Thursday 13 December.
