On their bikes at Connaught Court

Connaught Court, the RMBI home at York, has teamed up with Get Cycling to take residents with dementia on weekly companion cycle rides, part funded by the locally based Joseph Rowntree Foundation. Family members and staff have enjoyed cycling on tandem tricycles around the grounds of Connaught Court and are now planning a series of rides along riverside cycle paths and to the local park. Get Cycling CEO Jim McGurn said, ‘This is very much a pilot programme so we can learn from our experiences… It could be used across the country and be the start of many dementia cycling groups.’
