Cycle hire of persons with special needs

Thanks to Stiftung Cerebral [the Cerebral Foundation] and Rent a Bike, people with special needs can have a new experience of mobility in beautiful parts of the world. In using a bicycle, on the one hand they have the chance of doing something in the open air and enjoying the exercise in spite of their problems; and on the other hand, the whole family can plan an excursion together, which is nnot always an easy matter when one family member has special needs.
