Common Questions and Answers. If we havent addressed your question here - please contact us: 01743 363512 or email any futher questions or suggestions for questions to cycling@quest88.com.

The World Health Organisation defines Disability as follows: "Disabilities is an umbrella term, covering impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions". Whilst we may or may not regard ourselves as disabled, we can all have things which impair or prohibit our ability to do the things we have a passion to do. Often those things seem insignificant to others and yet they are no less limiting. Quest 88 has a wealth of experience in helping people to overcome the 'little mountains' that prevent us from beoming more active or independent. we want to share what we have learned and help you get going!

You will see similar cycles to those shown on our website, described as 'adapted bikes'. This is misleading. The word 'adapted' suggests a regular bicycle or tricycle which has been adapted to suit someone who is disabled, something a little more Heath Robinson! At Quest 88, we like to talk about 'Adaptive' cycles and by this we mean cycles that are specifically designed to provide for different kinds of riding and individual needs. The distinction is important and demonstrates that the equipment available today isnt merely an afterthought. A common response we hear at shows and at our shop is "we never knew that this kind of equipment existed". That is something we want to change so that people can start riding now and not have any regrets over missed opportunities. Please help us to spread the word!

Yes we do and we have been active in supplying many cycling schemes around the UK for the last 10 years.

Our Adaptive cycles have a reputation for robust construction and great serviceability. They also offer a wide range of accessories to help you to widen your scope for inclusion, including bib/harnesses, footplates, calf supports and reclining seats.
