I am wheelchair bound – can I take part in the Step Challenge?

Yes you can certainly take part. You can buy a bicycle odometer from your local bicycle store. The bicycle shop should be able to fit this for you and they will take into account the wheel diameter so that it’s as accurate as possible.
You will use this odometer to keep a record of your distance travelled daily. To convert the distance taken in the wheelchair to steps please allow 3 steps for every 1 metre travelled. Using this conversion you will be able to log your daily steps on the Active Travel Logger (links coming soon). Your Team Captain can also log on your behalf.
