My Modified bike

Due to my limited hip movement I almost gave up finding a way of being able to ride a bike, my left foot cannot rise up any higher than about 2cm below the bottom bracket. Bike with Hinged CrankHowever after talking to several bike shops, I came across Future Cycles in Forest Row, who in turn put me in touch with Unicam Mobility a small firm in Somerset. The proprietor Paul Butterworth (01460 67926) has developed a number of adaptations for cranks, in order to cater for different disabilities. In my case a hinged crank was the answer. I have amazed both myself and my friends by my new found competence!
