On your bike!

If you can't beat 'em... join them!

Sunday saw the Prudential Ride London bike race come charging through Surrey, into Kingston, up through Wimbledon and onto Buckingham Palace to finish in the Mall.

Although it was a great event with thousands lining the streets, it presented huge logistical nightmares for our Caregivers getting to their clients. Many relying on in care at home as a lifeline to independence!

Many Caregivers decided to abandoned their cars and took to their bikes to get to clients home.

Gladys, pictured,  said " I tried to drive through Wimbledon but realised very quickly that the police were not going to let me through, even knowing the type of work I was doing, they weren't making any exceptions, so I turned around and went home and got my bike out and sailed through the village!"

We are now thinking of introducing Home Instead bikes to the company - well if Boris can do it...!
