You Can Bike Too at Milton Country Park
The centre began with Aaron’s wish. His wish was to cycle with his family and friends, to experience the wind on his face as he pedalled to freedom and independence. He met Ruth, a keen Cambridge cyclist and incredible people connector, who helped Aaron fulfil his dream. Importantly the team who made the project happen are people with learning difficulties and mixed abilities, and their aim is for the whole community to use it! Milton County Park covers 95 acres and is located north-east of Cambridge city centre. It is built on old gravel pits and provides a natural habitat for wildlife, with large water pools and wetland areas, meadowlands, a play area and many pathways for horses riders, walkers, cyclists and wheelchair users. There is a full programme of regular and special events held at the park throughout the year too.www.facebook.com/youcanbiketoo
