On Saturday 11th March 10am-3.30pm, Quest 88 invited Disabled Access Day participants to join an Accessible Pedal in the Park at the Inclusive Cycling Hub. There were a number of special cycles, tandems, handcycles and tricycles available to try out and ride in Shrewsbury’s town park. Quest 88 provided support together with some coaching and bags of encouragement to riders of all ages and abilities.
Powered by Euan’s Guide, the disabled access review website, Disabled Access Day is all about ‘You and Somewhere New’ and invites disabled people, their families and friends to visit and experience places and activities that they’ve never tried before. Businesses and attractions all over the country and beyond have been signing up to hold events over the weekend to publicise their accessibility and welcome new visitors and customers.
Quest 88 challenges assumptions about disabled people with their assistive technologies and innovative products which are functional, aesthetic and easy to use. Our ‘come and try days’ at the Inclusive Cycling Hub in Shrewsbury match the spirit of Disabled Access Day, and the award-winning event was delighted to have Quest 88 on board, joining forces with other key supporters including Sophie Christiansen OBE for what was the biggest Disabled Access Day yet.
