Cycle Training, Workshops, Events & more

Wheely Fun Wheels Ltd is based in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. The business is run by Alastair Meikle who was raised in Chesterfield and after leaving school spent 30 years working for the Civil Aviation Authority and National Air Traffic Services. One of a very few people who regularly cycled to work at the London Air Traffic Control Centre! Following his decision to leave air traffic control he spent a year touring Europe in a motorhome with his family and bicycles before relocating back to Chesterfield and starting Wheely Fun Wheels.

Since then Wheely Fun Wheels has gathered an experienced team of local National Standard Cycling instructors who are keen to promote the use of bicycles as every day transport. Our oak framed, straw bale walled office is pictured below.

Alastair was the winner of the national Modeshift award in 2017 'Individual Contribution to Sustainable Travel' and in 2019 delivered practical training workshops at the national Bikeability conference.

Have a look at our 'blog' with Wheely Fun Wheels and other local cycling (and sometimes other stuff) news.

Amongst our group of instructors we have qualified bike mechanics, ‘Breeze’ leaders, British Cycling coaches and experience of working with disabilities. Our Bikeability instructors also deliver our balance bike programme and adult cycle training.

Our sister company Inclusive Pedals CIC is a social enterprise delivering adapted cycling sessions and community cycling initiatives.

We also like to operate as an ‘ethical’ business with a social responsibility.

Whilst we are often on our bikes for our daily transport needs most of us also tour on our bikes, do the occasional race and take part in sportives. Check our 'resources' page for local cycling information and instructors details.

However you engage with us you will find us friendly and adaptable to your needs.
