The search for a suitable bicycle
"I live so nice here, close to the beach, the dunes, the forest and the polder. There are a lot of nice things to do in the summer in Kijkduin, but I’m not able to go and that is upsetting me."
It became the right time to break the circle and Monique (her friends call her Mo), knew what she wanted, a bicycle! De doctor advised her to get a bicycle with electric pedal support.
" I’m not allowed to put a lot of strength on my knees or struggling with the wind. A bicycle with pedal support is exactly what I wanted, but I wanted better or better said, one wheel more, because a tricycles would probably be provided by the WMO organization."
Tricycle with pedal support for Mo
In October 2016 was the moment there for Monique, she could pick up her tricycle with pedal support in the store.
"And there was my beautiful new tricycle. A beautiful purple/blue color with a cool basket on the back and a small saddle."
