I am a keen cyclist with parkinson's and the parkinson's has affected my balance and coordination and i tire easily. This has meant that i have struggled to go on club rides and hence have been doing less and less cycling.
I have solved the problem by buying a recumbent trike with a motor and now i can go out on club rides and lead rides and cycle with my husband. It is brilliant and I am really enjoying it.
But today i asked 2 friends if i could cycle with them and the one said she did not want to cycle with me because i was on a trike.
i was really upset. the rest of the club who were there at the time are quite happy to cycle with me and said to take no notice of this person.
Is this allowed ? It seems to me to be discrimination?
