Hand cycle hire in or around Perth ?

Postby jonny5 » Tue Feb 05, 2013 10:12 pm

Hi there , I'm a full time wheelchair user in the UK and have my own Hand cycle which I will be riding again as soon as we get rid of the gail force winds and the snow !, I'm about to spend 6 weeks on holiday in Perth WA and have been on Google trying to locate anywhere that has hand cycles for hire - with no luck so far. Has anyone out there come across any hire shops that have one for hire ? doesn't just have to be Perth - surrounding area would be fine too - will miss not riding for 6 weeks if I can't locate one . Its not practical to take my own as it fits to another wheelchair which I only use with the bike,

I think there is a group that has coffee at one of the cafes here on a Saturday. One day I spotted them gathered at Deep Water Point cafe, if I saw them again I will ask. But I am not aware of any hire of them as they are somewhat of a rarity and all of the models I saw where expensive european ones.
