Since then he was no longer allowed to drive or cycle. In 2016 he was told that he was no longer allowed to cycle on a regular bike, so he started searching for custom bikes with a reinforced frame. During his search, he ended up on the Van Raam website. He was then able to find a lot of information on the website about the possibilities of adapted bicycles.
