David was a keen cyclist until a stroke significantly reduced his mobility and took his speech. After hearing about the All Ability Cycling project, David decided to give it ago, and he never looked back.
David Watts was passionate about cycling, and would cycle long distances often covering up to several thousand miles a year. Then, in January 2013, he suffered a stroke, which severely impaired his physical mobility and he had to stop.
David’s physiotherapist casually mentioned the All Ability Cycling Project, after hearing that he used to cycle. They had seen positive progress on the scheme with some of their other stroke patients, and felt that it might help boost David’s self esteem.
