Hand-crank cycles (available at Parsley Hay)

Hand-crank cycles are, as the name suggests, powered using the arms rather than the legs. They give people who are unable to use pedal cycles the freedom and independence to get out into the countryside and enjoy a cycle ride.

Boma all terrain wheelchair bike - Parsley Hay only

The Boma is an electrically powered all terrain mobility solution designed to accommodate riders with a range of physical impairments. Boma is suitable for riders who have some use of their upper body and arms. Designed for easy access for wheelchair/seated position as well as from standing position; the front wheel of the Boma can be swung out of the way, allowing extra space to draw your wheelchair in the transfer. The handlebar steering system is extremely intuitive, as is the twist grip motorbike style throttle. The throttle can be fitted on the left or right side, or on both sides (interchangeable by switch) which can be useful for riders who suffer with fatigue in their grip.
