  • About Megan
    When Megan was 27 years old, she suffered an acute brain hemorrhage and stroke which left her with many long-term side effects including weakness in her right side and problems with her speech and coordination. Before her stroke, Megan was a sports and fitness coach which meant she knew that sports could help her rehabilitation. She started cycling and was soon accepted into the Paralympic Development Programme.
