Here's Ruby and Mum, Vanessa at the Manchester Velodrome with CFC Trustee and bike fit specialist Richard Salisbury receiving their bikes.
Diagnosed with Leukaemia (ALL), Ruby is now in remission. During much of her years of treatment, she was in a wheelchair. She was 5 years old at diagnosis and is now 9. She suffered with severe muscle wastage, joint and bone pain and has had years of physio. She is now able to walk mostly without a limp, her balance has also greatly improved. Until now, she has never felt ready to try to ride a bike and is now worried that she'll never be able to do it. Mum tried her on a friend's bike but it was too heavy for her and she has no experience of cycling whatsoever.
Thanks to Richard for getting Ruby and mum pedalling. @pedalprecision
