Help Us To Make A Difference!
Daniel Grundy-Evans suffers from severe autism, epilepsy and Tourette syndrome. He loves cycling and used to go out on his specially-adapted bike with his mum, riding local bike trails. Sadly thieves broke into the garage where his bike was stored and stole it, along with his mum’s bike which tows Daniel’s bike and all their cycling kit.
Cycle Tech Herts are part of the magnificent group of bike riders working with Harpenden Leos and Heart FM to raise money to replace Daniel’s bike kit and get him back on the road.

Cycling is for everyone- from ultra-fit sports people to those who need specially adapted equipment to help them get out. Getting out on a bike is great for fitness, gets you out in the open air and is great for stress. It’s particularly important for Daniel. Daniel’s mum says “We haven’t been on holiday since he was born. Cycle rides are like our holiday.”
We are going to make that happen again!
Leos will donate the specialised bike Daniel needs but we still need to replace the kit and buy an adult bike for his Mum to tow him on. £200 will buy waterproofs, lights and locks for the bike. Any additional money raised will go towards extra security kits and bike covers to keep the bike safe and dry. Hopefully we will be able to go one step further and buy a new bike for his mum! Any additional money will go towards the Cycle Touring Club’s work with disabled people.
We ride on November 17th starting from the ‘Inn On The Park’, Verulamium Park at 11am – riding for approximately 40 miles. You will hear plenty of support from Heart FM on our fundraising progress. You can also keep up with us on http://ridefordaniel.blogspot.co.uk/
