With only two days to go, our storage container at Alice Holt Forest is really starting to fill up with equipment we’ll need at East Hampshire Cycling for All.
On Wednesday, Helen and I drove all the way up to the Lake District to meet Chris from Center Parcs. As manager of Whinfell Forest‘s enormous bike fleet, Chris was happy to give us three Hoening Duets – wheelchair/bike combos. These are great for people unable to cycle but who want to experience the enjoyment of a good ride. The cycles will be used in East Hampshire as well as in Reading. Thank you Chris at Center Parcs! More kit arriving soon…
Our goal at East Hampshire Cycling for All is to make cycling accessible to everyone, even if an impairment makes this a challenge. While some disabled people may appreciate the more unusual cycles we’re getting hold of, there are others for whom a regular bike, with the right adjustments and advice, is just right for the job.
With this in mind, our partners at East Hampshire District Council have supplied a number of conventional bikes, in a range of sizes, with front suspensiona nd lots of gears. Just right for Alice Holt Forest. Thank you Mike and Liz and EHDC!
It’s not compulsory to wear a helmet when cycling, but I think it’s a great idea, especially when off-road. So to help everyone stay safe, our friends at Hampshire County Council have helped us out by supplying a pile of helmets from their Road Safety Shop. Thank you Mike and Sam of HCC!
