Cycling back to health after a stroke

After suffering from a stroke, Ken Robinson has rekindled his passion for cycling and with some help and support from CTC's Cycling Development Officer in Sheffield Steve Marsden he's pedalling once more.

Just before Christmas 2011 Ken Robinson from Rotherham had a stroke. It completely changed his life and the lives of others around him. He had cycled most of his life and he felt that he would never be able to ride again.

The Stroke Unit at the hospital recommended CTC's All-Ability Cycling Project at Hillsborough Park in Sheffield. Ken then contacted CTC's Cycling Development Officer in Sheffield Steve Marsden and realised with some help and support he could cycle again.

Transport for Greater Manchester (TFGM) established a cycling team as part of their ambitious Local Sustainable Transport Fund (LSTF) programme.

The cycling elements of the programme include hard measures, such as secure parking facilities at purpose-built cycling hubs and cycle storage grants to businesses, and soft measures such as cycle training, events, group rides and try-a-bike sessions.
