Participants with disabilities

We believe that sport and activity should be accessible for all, which is why we support people with a range of disabilities to take part in Ford RideGlasgow.

Taking part

You can use the following wheeled equipment or device:

  • Handbikes
  • Trikes
  • Tandems, including side-by-side tandems
  • E-bikes
  • You must wear a helmet.

Please note: skates, inline skates such as rollerblades, skateboards, scooters and wheelchair race chairs may not be used. 

Do you require a support rider?

Sunny Cycles and Free Wheel North have a range of adaptive cycles and are offering come-and-try rides starting from Glasgow Green. To find out more and to discuss individual needs please reach out directly.

Event Day Access and Support

The event has step-free access throughout. There are no steep hills on the FreeCycle route.


Looking to park close to the event? Head to Glasgow Green via Bridgegate onto Steel Street. There will be a one-way system in operation with vehicle crossing points at Bridgegate/Saltmarket and London Road/Charlotte Street. 

You'll find a limited number of public parking bays on Greendyke Street/Charlotte Street.
Please note, these bays are open to residents and local businesses, so there is limited availability.

 Please see the interactive map below.


There are wheelchair-accessible toilets at the Festival Zones at George Square and Glasgow Green. There are also seating areas and food and drink stalls.

Quiet Space

If the crowds and noise are overwhelming and you need a calming and soothing spot, we also provide a quiet space at Glasgow Green.

Need to get in touch?

Please email us if you need to discuss access needs.
