Up and running in LowEdges
Ginger will be installed in her regular garage this week, ready for trips in the LowEdges/Greenhill area. We are excited about making new friends in the area.

Love Parks Trishaw Rides
Take a ride on our cycle rickshaws and enjoy the autumn in Sheffield Parks! Cycling Without Age Sheffield is holding ‘Love Parks Trishaw Rides’ to help less mobile people experience the wind in their hair, the smell and crunch of autumn leaves and some friendly chat. Rides are completely free of charge.
As the Covid 19 restrictions are easing slightly, we are beginning to think how we can provide rides for individuals. If you have any thoughts please let us know via the form on the Contact Us page.
