On Wednesday September 17th, everyone – including those with a learning, sensory or physical impairment – will have the chance to cycle in the beautiful surroundings of QueenElizabethCountryPark in Horndean, Hampshire.
A range of unusual cycles will be available to ride including: tricycles, tandems, hand-powered trikes and even sociable ‘side-by-side’ cycles for two people. This equipment enables those who would not normally be able to experience the freedom and joy of cycling.
CTC Cycle Champions Officer Clive Andrews explains: “We’ve been offering accessible cycling to many people in East Hampshire since our launch earlier this year in AliceHoltForest, near Alton. It’s been great to ride with new cyclists who previously thought cycling wasn’t for them. Now we’re launching at QueenElizabethCountryPark so people around the Petersfield area will be able to join in too.”
Guidelines recommend that five half-hour sessions of moderate exercise each week can bring significant benefits for us all. Projects like East Hampshire’s Cycling for All try to ensure that no-one is excluded from the chance to choose a healthy lifestyle.
The event takes place between 10am and 3pm. For more information contact Clive Andrews in advance by calling 07717 721511 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
