We challenged ourselves to hike to Llyn Llydaw a lake part of the way up Snowdon in North Wales which is the highest mountain in England and Wales in an ordinary wheelchair with just the freewheel attachment. You can get to Llyn Llydaw by following the miners track up Snowdon. This was definitely the most challenging wheelchair hike we've ever done!

We (Craig and Claire) return home and attempt to go back to normal life 6 months after a cycling accident that left Craig paralysed from the chest down and reliant on a wheelchair. Join us as we learn what it's like to live with a spinal cord injury, discover the challenges wheelchair users have to face and overcome and search for wheelchair accessible hotspots. We want to show you how much paraplegics can still do and that there is life after paralysis!
