Live life to the full – cycling at the Scottish War Blind Centre

Many in our communities live with a vision impairment, and may think cycling is beyond their reach.  The West Lothian Bike Library’s aim is to reduce barriers to cycling, regardless of circumstance. So we were delighted to offer the loan of some of our bikes to the Scottish War Blind Centre at Linburn in West Lothian in November.

Users at the Centre got to try our Roam Twin Split Bike – safe in the hands of a Centre instructor but still able to participate in pedalling and steering. And of course, enjoy the buzz we all get from cycling a bike! 

In the pictures are Tom Hedges, Derek Marland, Ian McGregor and Bill Chalmers.  Thanks to Kelly from Scottish War Blinded for letting us use the images.  If your group or organisation would like to arrange access to our bikes and equipment, get in touch.
