Introduction to cycling with BLESMA

A group of disabled services veterans are joining us for a cycle ride this weekend.

Members of Blesma, the military charity for limbless veterans, are coming to try out a range of handcycles, recumbents and trikes.

After a short assessment by our expert staff, the group will set off to explore some of the cycle lanes close to our shop.

But it’s not the first time Blesma members have visited us.

For the past few years, they’ve enjoyed outings on York Solar System Cycleway, a picturesque National Cycleway very close to our headquarters.

We hope they all have an amazing time with us again!

Blesma, The Limbless Veterans helps all serving and ex-Servicemen and women who have lost limbs, or lost the use of limbs or eyes, to rebuild their lives by providing rehabilitation activities and welfare support. Their programmes allow Members and their families to face the challenges ahead with renewed confidence and self-belief.
