    Well, it had to happen, the tricycle has been taken back.
    I had a loan of it for a good few months, so no complaints, the recent bad weather has meant that I could not get out on it so much, and the fact that my arms/hands are weaker means I found it more difficult to hold/hang onto the the handlebars.
    I am very grateful for the loan and I thank Sheffield City Council for giving me the chance to get back out cycling.
    Somebody else is now getting the benefit, and I wish them well.

    Before lockdown in March (and before my diagnosis), I got an electric bike on a months loan from Cycleboost, an organisation to get people biking). It was a lifesaver on Sheffield hills to get out into the countryside during lockdown, and I really wanted to buy one for myself. Cycleboost staff were furloughed, and the bike was not called in until August, when I knew my fate and didn't think it was worth buying one. Cycleboost have so kindly let me keep it longer, so grateful as can still use it despite having to use the turbo setting more and more as my legs weaken! Sheffield is doing us proud in this respect x

    Looks great Dave, though obviously you'd prefer your old 2-wheels...

    Enjoy your few months with it - hopefully you'll be able to borrow it again or even (somehow) buy one.

    Take care.

    Love Ellie.

    Looks great, I want one. Well done Sheffield council. All you need now is the Peter Fonda jacket and stars'n'stripes helmet.

    I feel your pain brother. I to love motorcycling, I still have mine and ride it to the shops and back. I feel so free and the nothing else shuts out the world as effectively as when I accelerate down the road on it. In fact my profile picture is of my cam shaft on my ZZR when I have to adjust the valve clearances two years ago, before ride my motorcycle to Spain over the pyrenees.

    started a topic Tricycling instead of the motorbike or cycle

    Tricycling instead of the motorbike or cycle

    I thought some of you may be interested in the Tricycle I have been loaned.
    Predominantly my weakness has been in my arms, this has meant I had to stop motorcycling and cycling, especially after a couple of falls, one with the motorbike falling and me not able to stop it going down and the other was with the cycle where I pulled the brakes on and consequently tumbled over the handlebars not too serious, but could have been.
    Sheffield City Council bought 4 Ram Raam Easy Rider electric tricycles and I have been fortunate to loan one for three months. This has enabled me to get out cycling with er indoors and friends. I do feel like I look disabled on it, but with a helmet and dark glasses on, who cares.
    I can simply whizz along with the wife struggling to keep up and hills are a doddle, however, I am unable to put my arm out to indicate my direction intention, so rely on er indoors to cycle behind and indicate for me. I steer using my shoulders, but both hands must stay on the handlebars.
