Access • Advice • Adventure

Experience Community is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company that helps disabled people access the outdoors  through a range of inclusive walking, cycling, conservation and arts activities. We’re  interested in building communities of like-minded people, so we provide group sessions so that people can make new friends and learn from each others’ experiences.

 

Although we’re a not-for-profit organisation, we do have to charge for these sessions as the money raised helps us maintain our work, including researching new walks and filming them for the community to share and enjoy. However, we do try to keep our charges as low as possible and the activities featured on our website start from £5.00 per session at Leeds Urban Bike Park and £12.50 on our weekend rambles and rides.

We provide films and information about walks and other leisure activities for disabled people and the wider community. Because different people have varying abilities we don’t say what is or isn’t accessible, we simply provide information so that you can decide if the activity is suitable for your needs. We hope that through providing the videos you can see exactly what the walk or activity has to offer. In addition to this, we also provide written information, maps, photos and links to other websites so that you can really get a grasp of what to expect.

Phototrails.org is our sister site which combines online mapping, geotagged photos of facilities and barriers and our unique route indicator system to give an overall picture of what disabled access is like. The information can be used by people with a variety of disabilities, families with pushchairs and walking toddlers or by older people who might require more detailed information before setting out on a route.
