Biking without boundaries

Cycling is an activity which, as a rule, relies on you being able to see where you're going,so you might think that having a visual impairment would rule you out of taking part. But we all know that rules are there to be broken and, with a bit of help, pretty much anyone can cycle.

I work for CTC as an Inclusive Cycling Development Officer. Along with partner organisation Cycling Projects and with funding from the Big Lottery, we are trying to grow the network of inclusive cycling groups in England, to help make cycling accessible to more and more people, regardless of ability.

Lindsay's story

Lindsay's life was transformed by an accident that left her paralysed from the chest down. Now, with the help of an inclusive cycling centre, her fitness levels have improved so much she has become a personal trainer.

Seven years ago, Lindsay had a motorbike accident. “A roundabout at 20mph, I didn’t think it could happen like that. I broke my back, leaving me paralysed from the chest down. I was thirty-one, in the army reserves and pushing my body hard. I was at my prime.”
 
“I’d always done a lot of running, circuit training and going to the gym” Lindsay explains.
