Wheels for All

Comments

It’s taken us a while to get to Marion & Rob, winner of the “name a hand-propelled” trike competition, which was set earlier this year.

The winning name “Thunderbolt” was a hit with everyone at Tomcat HQ as we all thought it was a fitting name for the latest edition to our fleet.

Last Friday, our assessor Kevin Barry and the head of marketing, Nazia White, delivered Rob’s much anticipated trike to Littlehampton. Unfortunately, this was not the winning prototype of the hand-propelled trike, but after careful consideration and a conversation with our chief engineer and MD, Bob Griffin, Marion decided that the trike was not suitable for her son due to his condition, as he would be unable to ride the hand-propelled trike.
The good news is that she has chosen to donate the trike to her local Wheels for All Centre (hooray!) and Tomcat found a suitable alternative – the Tomcat Fizz! A win-win for everyone involved.

Please keep your eyes peeled for future competitions, and in the meantime check out our website for further details about our range of trikes. www.tomcatuk.org

We are pleased to see that the local community is enjoying the new Gooseholme Bridge!

Following the bridge's opening many people have walked across it, including residents with their dogs, cyclists, adapted bikes from Wheels for All and some parents with pushchairs

The new footbridge creates a fully accessible traffic-free link to Kendal town centre and it also repairs an important link for National Cycle Route 6 between Lancaster and Carlisle

For more information about the official opening that took place on Friday 14 October, please visit our website: https://bit.ly/GooseholmeBridgeOpens
Yesterday saw Wheels for All officially launch in Kingston, and what a great day it was!

Sessions are held every Monday, see the link below for more information 😃

👫 Some of our clients who have been taking part in our Wheels for All partnership attended the Liverpool City Region active travel summit recently.

🎖️ Mayor Steve Rotheram has announced £12m of additional funding has been secured to build high-quality walking and cycling routes across the Liverpool City Region. 🚴

The money will be used to create safe, segregated bike paths and footways and improve junctions across all six boroughs of the Liverpool City Region – Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral.

Kendal Wheels for All making good use of the new bridge over the river Kent.

The original footbridge was damaged and out of use for nearly 7 years following Storm Desmond. This wonderful long awaited replacement bridge has ample room for adapted bikes to cross in safety and we’re loving it!! 💛

Once the flood relief work along the river is completed this bridge will open up new routes for adapted cycles in Kendal. 😊🚲🙌

Sara has always done cycling over the years and after a friend, who is a volunteer, introduced her to Wheels for All she went along to find out more. She was amazed by the participants and volunteers and had to get involved, despite her already busy schedule of being a mum to 2 teenagers and working full time as an event organiser! 😆

UK Disability History Month – 16 November – 16 December 16/11/2022

UK Disability History Month – 16 November – 16 December

UK Disability History Month runs from today, 16th November until 16th December, and this year the theme is Disability, Health, and Well Being.

Cycling is great exercise for improving wellbeing and mental health. Did you know that para-cycling debuted at the Paralympic Games in 1984? It was first developed by cyclists with visual impairments who competed on tandem bicycles. At the 1984 Paralympic Games, a total of 22 para cyclists from eight countries participated in seven events. Just two athletes took part in the only female event.

Further events were added over the next four Paralympic Games, with track cycling introduced in Atlanta in 1996. These days, the Paralympic Games welcome over 200 para cyclists from nearly 50 countries, competing for 50 titles.

The online launch of UK Disability History Month will be tomorrow evening (Thursday 17th November). Head to the website to find out more about how you can get involved.

Held on 10th October every year, this year’s theme for World Mental Health Day is 'Make mental health and wellbeing for all a global priority'.

Cycling isn’t just fantastic for your physical health but your mental health too.

☀️ Decreased stress and anxiety – cycling reduces the levels of cortisol, the ‘stress hormone’, and stimulates the release of endorphins or ‘feel good hormones’ which lift your mood
☀️ Focus on the ‘now’ and distract yourself from unwelcome or overwhelming thoughts
☀️ Boosts your self-esteem and confidence by giving you a challenge and sense of satisfaction
☀️ Gets you out into the fresh air amongst beautiful scenery with the wind in your hair, leaving you feeling revitalised and energised – admire the Autumn colours!
☀️ Cycling is a great social activity and by visiting a Wheels for All centre or taking part in a Pedal Away ride, you’ll have the opportunity to make new friends and socialise with like-minded people. Friends, family, co-workers, coaches, carers … whoever you like, are also welcome to join in.

Even if you’re only feeling up to a short ride, you’ll feel so much better.

How will you make your mental health a priority? Why not come along to your nearest Wheels for All or Pedal Away centre and give cycling a go?

Jo Smith, our Colchester Wheels for All coordinator, said of our event with Care Home Friends and Neighbours, “We had many joyous moments, matched with big smiles. There was reliving of memories and dispelling of belief that cycling would be impossible at their age. One of the organisers quoted from a resident that we had made dreams come true – that made my day. It was one of the best days we have ever had on the track, everyone who took part or volunteered left a little bit happier that day”. 😊
