May 3rd - First dayride of the year, and as usual, I was drawn to the trails of the Peak district like a magnet to iron. I cycled the High Peak and Tissington trails, and stopping at Middleton Top and Parsley Hay, I noted the selection of equipment available for hire to those less mobile folk, who nonetheless like to get out and enjoy the area like I do.
It’s good to see a rough-terrain mobility scooter, and all the varies of wheelchair and handcycle. Those things don’t half rocket, too; I used to see an athlete in training on one of those for the Paralympics regularly on the Tisssington Trail.
It’s great to see such thoughtful provision.
