Specialist cycle and mobility equipment provider for disabled children and adults confirms support for the award-winning Disabled Access Day in the UK
Quest 88, inclusive cycle specialist, has been confirmed as a supporter of Disabled Access Day taking place from 10th-12th March 2017. Powered by Euan’s Guide, the disabled access review website, Disabled Access Day is all about ‘You and Somewhere New’ and invites disabled people, their families and friends to visit and experience places and activities that they’ve never tried before. Businesses and attractions all over the country and beyond have been signing up to hold events over the weekend to publicise their accessibility and welcome new visitors and customers.
Quest 88 challenges assumptions about disabled people with their assistive technologies and innovative products which are functional, aesthetic and easy to use. Their ‘come and try days’ at the Inclusive Cycling Hub in Shrewsbury match the spirit of Disabled Access Day, and the award-winning event is delighted to have Quest 88 on board, joining forces with other key supporters including Sophie Christiansen OBE for what will be the biggest Disabled Access Day yet.
On Saturday 11th March 10am-3.30pm, Quest 88 are inviting Disabled Access Day participants to join an Accessible Pedal in the Park at the Inclusive Cycling Hub. There will be a number of special cycles, tandems, handcycles and tricycles available to try out and ride in Shrewsbury’s town park, together with some coaching and bags of encouragement. The Disabled Access Day supporters will also be invited to have a coffee and a cake at the neighbouring Stop Café courtesy of Quest 88. It is advisable for people wishing to take part to book a slot in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01743 363512.
Robert Henshaw, managing director at Quest 88, says: “As providers of specialist cycles and equipment for disabled children and adults, Quest 88 is excited about its involvement in this year’s Disabled Access Day and the opportunity for people to see and try new things.”
Disabled people, their friends and families are invited to sign up and search for events near them on the Disabled Access Day website. There will be hundreds of places taking part in towns, cities and rural locations around the UK celebrating accessibility on March 10th-12th 2017.
