Just before Christmas 2011 Ken Robinson from Rotherham had a stroke. It completely changed his life and the lives of others around him. He had cycled most of his life and he felt that he would never be able to ride again.

The Stroke Unit at the hospital recommended CTC's All-Ability Cycling Project at Hillsborough Park in Sheffield. Ken then contacted CTC's Cycling Development Officer in Sheffield Steve Marsden and realised with some help and support he could cycle again.
