Fifteen years of saving lives on two wheels

Cyclists with the training and equipment to save hundreds of lives every year are being celebrated in the latest campaign by the region’s ambulance service.
With a top speed of around 25mph and an average of 15 miles cycled a day, the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust’s (EEAST) cycle response units (CRU) play an important role in the region.
Fifteen years ago, Norwich became the first place in the East to welcome pedalling paramedics.
