Having found each other by using each others products and services - we're all disabled ourselves (or in Mountain Trike's case, friends of someone with a disability) - we each realised we like the cut of each others jibs. We've all poured so much time and energy into building up our own reputations, that we could see good products and customer service a mile off. So it only seemed natural to join together in a network which offers our customers the benefit of confidence and greater knowledge and ourselves the benefits of friends and support.
