Check out Ieuan's Oarsome hand cycle
Ieuan from Newport, South Wales got in touch with us as he wanted to use the Oarsome Grips on his hand cycle for a 300 mile race.
A few words from Ieuan the Genius himself:
During my London to Paris an cycle ride the Oarsome grips proved to be a vital part of my kit. The ride was organised by ordinary to extraordinary which is a organisation that urges individuals to go out of their comfort zones and raise Money for Charity. The ride covered more than 300 miles in three days and without the grips completion of the ride would not have been possible, firstly I used the Oarsome Grips pre ride to loosen all muscles in my hand and decrease levels of spasticity. Additionally the grips provided superb protection from blistering to my palms and proved effective for the duration of the day. I also used the Oarsome Grips as part of my recovery to decrease the tension that had built up throughout the day. I would recommend the grips to anyone utilising a hand bike due to the whole host of benefits they provided me. Furthermore they are small and light so this allows for easier transportation. The ride attracted more than 100 riders from all across then UK and provided 28K for each of the five charities which were Sparkle appeal Cherry trees hospice, Demelza Hospice , Haven House and get kids going.
2014 promises to be just as big for myself with many charity challenges planned for example Cardiff half marathon in my wheelchair in support of bobath wales who have supported my development since an early age.
I am hugely thankful to Emily and her team without the generous support none of this would be possible
Aww shucks! We are so proud of Ieuan, and what a lovely young man he is too
