Vista are working with Leicester Wheels For All, a charity whose goal is to get as many people cycling as possible, regardless of age, ability, or any perceived disability. They have been working closely with Vista's residential homes to offer cycling experiences to our residents and members and have received nothing but praise. 

On Friday the 3rd of May, they will be hosting a 'ride in the park', with a wide range of accessible cycles. The idea is to get as many people as possible to get out on a bike ride, especially people who never thought they would be able to ride a bike again, or maybe not rode one since being younger.  

Vista activities organiser Susan Hough said "I want to get as many of Vista's members involved as I think this is a magical experience not just for them but also for all taking part. Its about everyone enjoying themselves." 

Peter Simmonds of Wheels for All said, "There is quite a lot involved because this will be a first "Ride in the Park" for us and proving the concept is very important, so I'm delighted that Vista will be our first customer."

The first Ride in the Park will take place on May 3rd, 10am till 12pm, in Abbey Park, Leicester, LE4 5AQ.
