Charlotte's Tandems Norfolk
We lend, at no cost (i.e. for free), tandems and tag-alongs to (and only to) people with disabilities or additional needs, who are unable to ride a bike safely on their own, so that they can enjoy the wonders of cycling.
We have about 140 tandem bikes, 24 tag-along bikes, 2 tandem trikes and 4 tag-along trikes all over the UK and Ireland (at the start of 2018). They are with Borrowers for the vast majority of the time but looked after by the Volunteer Helpers. They are available for hire for a couple of a months at a time, though some people have them for much longer.
The disabilities and special needs of our borrowers have so far included: Severe Learning Difficulties, Autism, Asperger's, Blindness, Visual Impairment, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Stroke, Amputation, Hearing Loss, Dyspraxia, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Parkinson's, MS, ME, CRPS, COPD, Hemiplegia, Tuberous Sclerosis, CHARGE & MPS III. Tandems are a fun and safe way to get out and about as friends, a couple, family or group.
