1. WHEELIE FRIENDLY TOWNS


Syd & June Burns, of Penrith, England, who have graciously shared many of their travel adventures with Global Access News readers, are blessed with a new cycle track that encompasses the outskirts of their town. Syd Burns states, “This is superb for wheelies as we feel safe and secure, even though part of it runs along side a busy motorway. We did a four-mile circular route that really enabled us to stride out, and we have only touched part of it.” To view the Burns’ photos of the accessible cycle track visit: http://www.globalaccessnews.com/penrith.htm

Do you have any wheelie friendly features of your town? Let us know and we'll post your town’s access features on the website.

7. ORLANDO, FLORIDA 2002

Orlando
is such a popular travel destination that we received two access reports this month: One from Clinton Hull and the other from Nicholas Riley. Both writers provide excellent access tips.

In May 2002, Clinton Hull and his sisters took their disabled cousin, Charles Lewis, on a six-day trip to Orlando where they explored the best of that city’s many theme parks. Nicholas Riley flew from England to visit Orlando with his able-bodied wife and two disabled relatives. Share their adventures at http://www.globalaccessnews.com/orlandofl02.htm
