My handcycling experience

I am a keen cyclist. My bikes include 4 Schmicking handbikes, a Bacchetta Strada, an Ice Trike and a few uprights. I cycle for fitness, strength, stamina, pleasure and well being.

Over the last few years I have been actively involved with Hand Cycle Association UK, fitting, servicing and adjusting bikes at Taster Days. I have run the handbiking sessions for the Inter Spinal Unit Games (Wheelpower) and the adult and junior games (Limbpower).

In September 2012 I started a 6 month training program working for Thomas Schmicking, Schmicking Reha Technik GmbH, Holzwickede, Germany with a view to setting up handbike sales and servicing in the UK. I spent my time fitting and measuring customers and bikes, completing orders, assembling and servicing handbikes. I go back to Schmicking once a month for 3 or 4 days to work and train.

Testimonials

David, Bristol We had such an amazing day touring Cambridge with Mark on my taster day - great fun AND we are now near experts in Handcycles and feel much more confident in making my decision in purchasing a handcycle! Thank you for recommending such a lovely BnB near by and making our time so much fun.

Steve, Woking Had an action packed taster day with Mark's expert knowledge we spoke in depth about the products. I was kept informed with each step in the build process and would highly recommend!

Gary, London Had a great time this afternoon, basically learnt that I need a handcycle. Showing me how the hand crank should be positioned and backrest made our runout very comfortable. So, thank you Mark for explaining all to me.

Anthony, Godalming Arrived in Whittlesford mid morning, I got fitted and went for 2 rides. Mark taught me how to shift, brake and deliver power. It was a fun day and fancy getting back in a bike as soon as possible.

Selina, Bedford I came and had a session with Mark. We discussed handbikes, riding, fitness and safety. We went for a short ride, we didn't get very far but far enough to know that I needed a handbike. Thanks
