Alazar's story

Alazar from Horsham is 14 and has attended Wheels for ALL since 2010. In 2020 we nominated him for the Bikeability Trainee of the Year award and out of 900,000 entrants he won!

Talking to the West Sussex County Times at the time, Ed Clark, West Sussex County Council Cyclist Training Development Officer, said: “I’m tremendously proud of Alazar and all he has achieved. His achievements are a credit to both him and his family for their determination to find solutions to cycling, rather than just seeing barriers."

Alazar, who has cerebral palsy, has progressed from riding a wheelchair bike piloted by his family or instructors to riding his own rear steering recumbent trike (pictured). In 2018 he arrived at the club walking, which Ed says "was credited to the muscle development achieved through cycling."
