Oscar loves the opportunity to get some exercise in the fresh air. He loved cycling on a tag-along as a small child but this has been his first chance to cycle for about eight years. He enjoys the experience of the bike and having time to share with his Dad.

Nichole from Launceston, Cornwall
Nichole and her Dad, Mike, collected our Plymouth based Dawes tandem in mid-August 2016. Mike reported in mid-September that they "managed to get out today for the first real try. Did about 3 miles, up and down. Nicole did really well, but need to practice and get the saddle heights better."
Clinton from Hertfordhire
Alex and his Clinton collected one of our Hertfordshire based Globetrotter tandems in mid-August 2016. Steve, our Helper, wrote, "Photo of Alex and Dad trying out the tandem before taking it.
They want to try it with a trainer first to increase mobility before using it on local roads. Alex is very tall! He makes the 24 inch road frame look like a child's bike."
Niamh from Evesham
Niamh's Mum, Rachel, collected one of our Gloucestershire based Dawes Discovery tandems in mid-August 2016. Unfortunately Niamh was too small for it. It would have been better if she had attended when her Mum collected the tandem.
Debbie from Shropshire
Debbie and her Partner, Glyn, collected our Shropshire based Viking Companion in mid-August 2016. She wrote at the end of November, "Charlotte's Tandems gave me a great opportunity to join in cycling with the rest of my family when my lack of balance meant that I couldn't join them. The two months we had the tandem was great fun and we got out as often as we could. It really helped to build up my fitness, strengthen my legs and every time I went out, I came back feeling worn out, but invigorated by the experience.
We enjoyed it so much that we have been out and bought our own tandem so that we can continue the enjoyment."

Andrea from Motherwell
Richard from Shrewsbury

Toby from Winchester
Toby and his parents, Rob and Tanya, collected our Hertfordshire based Viking Valhalla at the start of August 2016. Tanya wrote, "Toby has had great fun this week on holiday in lovely flat Suffolk, by the river and inland on the marshes- cycling with Mum and Dad and lots of friends and cousins. He has loved being able to "take part" in bike rides with other kids, feeling like a normal little boy "racing" his brothers and feeling the wind in his face- magic thank you so much, it has been liberating for him."
Keelan from Cheltenham
Keelan and his Mum, Laura, collected our newly donated Gloucestershire based Trek tag-along at the start of August 2016.

Thank you so much for this opportunity!"
