Below is a tip for those bringing their own wheelchairs
We had a brilliant couple of weeks in September/October. Instead of listing all the wonderful times we had and things we enjoyed so much about our stay with you I thought that this time I would pass on some wisdom from Kumer.
Eleni has a manual titanium wheelchair with pneumatic tyres and even air-filled (Danish) casters at the front of the chair. These give the smoothest possible ride, without the jolting from solid tyres and hard casters, and are kind on the spine. The downside is the possibility of punctures when away from home. As well as the wheelchair Eleni now uses a Freewheel attachment, which has a single tyre, with an inner tube. That means three different sizes of tyres and inner tubes. We always travel with spare inner tubes and hope not to need them.
Riding along the traffic free path, along the sea front, in the first week, the Freewheel suddenly went flat and we found that a thorn had gone through the tyre and punctured the inner tube. On arriving back at C & A I looked for Kumer, who is a genius at fixing punctures. He took the wheel, Eleni’s allen keys and her spare inner tube and was back in no time with a fully inflated and functioning wheel. He even put a repair patch on the punctured inner tube, to create another spare. He said he was so happy that I carried spare tubes on holiday because he often finds people come without them, never considering that the specific size they need might not be available in Polis. He said people can really spoil their holiday if they rely on their own chair or other mobility aid and they have a puncture that cannot be fixed. Kumer wants everyone to have a great time and is really upset if he cannot carry out a repair to get people, who bring their own chair, mobile again. So, I am passing on his wisdom. “Always Pack spare inner tubes.”
