Writer David Reilly set off on the picturesque Route 78 of the National Cycle Network, which is 237 miles, to raise awareness of accessibility along this route.
Born with Cerebral Palsy, one of David’s objectives for his adventure was to challenge the perceptions about disability participation in cycling.
“Adventure to me is an unknown, when you don’t know the outcome, where you don’t know where you will be or where you will end up,” David said.
“Cycling has had a big impact on my life. I finished University and I struggled to get work. I convinced myself that working and having a career was everything. As time went on I just had to find other things to fill my life and that’s where cycling has come in.
“If I can encourage anybody to get even a fraction of what cycling has given me over the years, I would be a happy man. If you undertake a challenge like this, you will be surprised with what you can achieve.”
