Our team is slowly but surely, been broken up. Nick is the first to be moved to another Park, that has no Cycles, so he'll be cutting grass and the like. A waste of good team building skills, if you ask me. The mental Health Group was there today, with Sue who's been going to Hillsborough as long as I have, and now is a fully trained Cycle Leader, and Support Worker on the ward that participates in Cycling every week.
I tried a 2 wheeler and fell off twice grazing my elbows :( And I must say it was such a good job, I'd got my helmet on, the second time my head bounced on the concrete.
I get the impression that Steve Marsden, is gonna step in at Hillsborough, which is lovely but he's not as easy going as Nick, and he might be a hard task master!!! And who knows who's job is safe?
I slept and sweat ed, fever? hot flush? showered, and my wee boy opened the curtains and said it's a lovely day, you must go to Hillsborough. And do you know he was right I thought.
I'm not going to mention this too much, but The Olympic Torch Relay Organisation, have asked me if I use a Wheelchair daily? I said no, I can walk a few yards, but cycle miles!!! To which they replied, well we don't care how many times you have to stop and rest . But you must walk carrying the Torch, or use a Wheelchair. Your Trike is for Leisure purposes and there for you cannot use it!!!!
I don't have to tell you how upset this makes me feel !! The very reason, why I want to do the Torch, is to show there is an alternative to an electric scooter.
I can't write about it yet it makes me cry.
Holly is so beautiful and so good, she's like my shadow though.
This was the last didtch plea........
Good Afternoon, PLEASE, PLEASE reconsider, I don't drive and can't walk very far at all. But as with a lot of people who suffer physical disabilities I need to use my Trike in order to control my life and health. It's my car, or even my legs. And yes, before I got it I had to rely on a mobility scooter. I am passionate about making other folk with disabilities see the alternative to a Scooter/chair. Also I would love more than anything to use my delegated person, who would be Steve Marsden (CTC) to carry the olympic torch for me.
