ActiveSouthend Receive Adapted Bikes 28/06/2011Posted by Alex Wise in Southend-on-Sea.
Last week ActiveSouthend received expert tuition on the Dresden+ adapted bike that they purchased from Quest 88. The activity centre, ‘Viking Centre’, Southend, for adults and young people who have disabilities is such a great venue to test out this brilliant bike, as can be seen bellow:
Bike Club works closely with ActiveSouthend and helped them to purchase this bike using Aiming High for Disabled Children funding. The purpose of the bike is to provide cycling for everyone in the community; making cycling accessible to everyone.
Every angle of this Bike was tested, including how easy it is to hoist people into the front seat and its ability to be peddled backwards (in 7 different gears). Judging by the smiles on everyone’s faces I think the Dresden+ passed with flying colours.
Thank you to the Viking Centre and everyone who took part and a big thank you to Quest88 for coming along and providing the training. Brilliant stuff everyone!
