Since then, he has been having daily physiotherapy to recover the use of his left arm and leg. Initially he had to use an indoor electric wheelchair but he has now progressed to walking (sometimes with a stick). His determination is as solid as ever and he hopes to regain the use of his left arm.
Never one to shy away from a challenge, Alasdair is in training to take part in the CARTEN100 on Saturday 12 May 2018. It's a 100-mile bike ride from CARdiff to TENby. Helped by his amazing family and superb friends, Alasdair will ride on an adapted tandem tricycle, and he intends to have a party once he reaches Tenby!
