All Ability Cycling Hub opens

Posted on 15 Sep 2014

An innovative Shropshire company and Chamber of Commerce member has opened a new shop in the county to cater for an increased demand for its unique products, just in time for October which is officially Love Your Bike Month.

Quest 88 is a specialist cycle firm based in Shifnal and has won numerous awards for its equipment and customer service, having been in business for over 25 years, catering mainly for the disabled and people of limited abilities by creating specialist cycles, trikes, parallel tandems and recumbent bikes.

Managing director Rob Henshaw, said: “As part of company expansion, we have now opened an ‘all ability cycle hub’ in the village of Pontesbury, near Shrewsbury.  The location is ideal because we not only have a disused railway line nearby and the new cycle lane alongside the road to Minsterley, but Route 44 of the Sustrans’ National Cycle Network passes close by as well.”

“We are having an official opening on 29th October, but in the meantime people are welcome to come along and view our demonstration range of Fast Forward, A2B and Roodog cycles, as well as our adaptive cycles.”

 “The new centre will showcase the very latest range of electric bicycles, also known as e-bikes, which are proving to be very popular with riders young and old and with people with limited movement, as they provide a potential range of 40 to 50 miles when pedal-assisted.”

“This is not cheating, says Rob, but will help club and social riders who still wish to travel the distances that they have in the past, but possibly need a little assistance to enable them to carry on with their hobby, and the e-bikes are also ideal for commuters who want to arrive at work feeling less sticky than on a regular bike!”

Based in Bennetts Business Centre, the shop will benefit from an association with ‘Cycling Guru’ Steve Holloway, of Bicycle Smart, Telford, who will offer expert advice and guidance for people wishing to try out the range of specialist and e-bikes, whether they are beginners or experienced cyclists, using his vast knowledge for correct fitting and safe riding of bicycles and recumbent machines.

The ‘All Ability Cycle Hub’ in Pontesbury can be contacted on 0845 604 7258
