Testimonials

Pippa

I'm a 43 year old wheelchair user who has Cerebral Palsy, which effects all 4 limbs…I met Cycle Derby who invited me to an open day where I tried both the hand-crank and the tandem bikes. To my amazement, I found that not only could I balance on the saddle of the tandem bike. I could pedal it too… I can now cycle up to 6k!

Case Study

Pippa

My name is Pippa and I'm a 43 year old wheelchair user who has Cerebral Palsy, which effects all 4 limbs. I have always been outward going and have never let my disability get in my way.

I have always liked cycling but when I was a child, they didn't have the range of adapted bikes to suit my disability. What they did have was unstable and I kept on falling off.

About 15 years ago, I started going to the Calvert Trust, which is an outward-bound centre for disabled people. I found that I could manage the hand-crank bike (hand cycles) really well. On my most recent visit there, back in March of this year, I saw that they had a tandem bike that I maybe able to pedal. Even though there was not time for me to have a go on it, it made me realise how much I wanted to take cycling up as a hobby.

I did some research on the internet into adaptive cycling near me and that is when I found Cycle Derby. They invited me to an open day back in July, in Markeaton Park in Derby and I tried both the hand-crank and the tandem bikes. To my amazement, I found that not only could I balance on the saddle of the tandem bike. I could pedal it too.

I travel from Tamworth to Markeaton park every Tuesday for my weekly bike ride and Christine comes with me on the rides to monitor my progress and at the moment, I can cycle up to 6k. What makes it more special, is one of my most inspirational friends Diana Higman, who is a transplant double-gold medallist and lives round the corner from Markeaton Park joins me most weeks.
