Hi all. Thank you so much for all your donations - I am eternally grateful. Rather than establishing a separate charity I have networked locally and West Devon Community Voluntary Service has agreed to be the charitable partner for this project. To this end, we can now apply to Sport England, Waitrose, and Bring Joy Foundation to help fund our bike. It sometimes takes time for folk to get used to an idea and but we are now moving forward and I am really positive that we will get our first bike for Tavistock very soon. Thank you so much again and please do keep in touch with the project as it goes forward. I hope to get the wind in the hair for as many less mobile folk as possible!! Best wishes Lynn Roddy

I think this is a lovely idea, espeially as an elderly cyclist who would welcome such a service in future! Why don't you opt for flexible funding, so that you receive whatever is donated, rather than nothing if you don't reach your target?

Please help me with this project to reduce social isolation and loneliness for the elderly of our community and have fun at the same time.
