The challenge

Adult cycle stabilisers

Martin has mild cerebral palsy which affects his balance. He wanted to be able to ride a bicycle, particularly for a charity ride in support of the local hospice which helps his wife. An adult mountain bike was fitted with stabilisers. The stabilisers have large pneumatic tyre wheels. The stabilisers had to be strengthened with struts upwards and forwards to the rear frame of the bicycle to cope with the loads imposed by a heavy adult.

Martin completed the 24 mile charity ride and now uses the bicycle to get around the town.
