We have a team of around 12 helpers, all of whom give their time on a voluntary basis and are all DBS, formally CRB checked. They receive extensive training on our wide range of equipment. This includes 2 Victorian Tandem trikes, Duet and Discoverer cycles suitable for wheelchair users: Add I’s [two wheel trailer bikes, used with mountain bikes]; Trice and KMX recumbent trikes, standard and hand-cranked, for a fantastic ride; plus small wheeled Moultons and a variety of mountain bikes.
We have a saying at BikeActive that clients and helpers alike, “look at the machines and smile, sit on them and laugh, and cycle on them and sing!”. Sometimes it’s literally true, and passers-by are greeted with a smile, a wave and a ‘Hello’, such is the delight to be had from their cycling experience.
