Get on your trike!

The tricycle has caused such a lot of excitement and interest. A family member with a heart condition which is restricting him decided to have a creative approach to his limitations. He likes making things. It has been cold and wet and so it was a good winter activity to actually build the trike. You can buy them ready made. It has been a great project. It has used his brain, his ingenuity and allowed him to get some great feedback and involvement with others. It needs all the adjustments and fine tuning now and will then turn his often trying walk to the shops and back a nice little outing on his trike. It means he can increase his mobility and hopefully have more independence and fitness. That is the plan, anyway. His doctor is pleased with such a good approach to a difficult condition.
