N.A.B.D. Ali fulfils a DREAM!


Since she was ten years old Ali has wanted to ride on a motorbike, and thanks to the N.A.B.D, Ali this year was able to fulfil her dream.

Ali's mum and I had always been afraid to let Ali ride on a motorbike. Because of her disabilities, she would not have the stability to ride pillion.

A few weeks ago, friends Steve and Nicky, invited us along to the Calne bike festival where we met the guys from National Association for Bikers with a Disability. Arf, (now Ali's Hero) without a second thought offered to take Ali on his trike, and a couple of days later phoned and invited Ali along to a local hostelry where bikers meet up to swap stories and meet their friends. What a brilliant time Ali had. Not only did Arf take her on her trip of a lifetime, he also arranged for around twenty or so of his friends to ride along with them, so a whole cavalcade of riders escorted her along the road.

Ali is now a full member of N.A.B.D. and guess what?

Ali wants me to sell the car and buy a trike.
