Nick Mclean suffered undiagnosed cord compression for over 2 years before he was operated upon to relieve the situation. Having run his own successful business for many years as well as living an active sporting life enjoying diving, swimming and motor bike riding, it seemed during the initial years after his operation any active life would not be possible. Despite severe disabilities Nick has had a new lease of life through Ride’til We Rot Society. For any motorbike enthusiast this is a must – do check this out. The charity is based nationally and internationally promoting biking for anyone with any type of disability whether physical or mental health to get back into the saddle and onto the road. Like Nick, those with disabilities, use adapted bikes and join in rides when they can in addition to social events.
Julie Say of Hodge Jones & Allen says “This is a an amazing charity that enables people to continue doing what they love despite extreme adversity”
Nick McLean says “Ride’til We Rot has given me a new lease of life enabling me to participate in a pass time that I thought would never be possible. I have made many friends and the organisation has helped to infuse fun into my life which now feels more worthwhile.”
