Frame Running

Join us at our upcoming Frame Running sessions!

Our next Frame Running session will be held on Sunday 9th July, 11:30am-1pm at the Bristol Family Cycling Centre, Bamfield Road, BS14 OXD.

We have purchased our own frames for everyone to use, and refreshments will be available.

If possible, please could you bring along cycling helmets for safety purposes as well as your height, weight and inside leg measurement so you can be assessed for a frame.

We will be holding a Frame Running session once a month at the Cycling Centre on the following dates: 6th August
3rd September
With thanks to The Starfish Trust for their support in putting on the Frame Running sessions.

Please email us at to book!

What is Frame Running?

Hi everyone. I am Karon Edwards, the inclusion worker for CPP. I run the Frame Running sessions with my colleagues.

A lot of people have asked me “What is Frame Running?” Frame Running is like riding a trike. The frame has a saddle, handlebars, brakes and three wheels but no pedals. You use your feet on the floor to move yourself forward, and you can do this at any pace you like!

To clarify, the person using the frame does not need to weight bear (as long as they can transfer from their wheelchair into the frame with the support of their parent/carer/PA), but they do need to have movement in their legs to move forward. This can be a very small amount of movement as it does not take much to move themselves in the frame but that movement does need to be independent.

Frames are suitable for all children, young people, adults and their families, with all additional needs or disabilities.

It’s a lovely way to get some physical exercise while having fun and building up your stamina and strength.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our sessions very soon.

Please email Karon at if you have any questions!

We are proud to deliver all our activities to our members and their families and carers completely free of charge. We do rely heavily on donations to fund all our activities, and if you would like to contribute to our work you can do so here. Every donation is incredibly appreciated, and no amount is too small to help us continue providing a selection of fun activities for people with Cerebral Palsy.
