    Probably! I think what would be handy about going backwards in a manual chair is that you don’t get that heart-stopping moment where your small caster wheels get jammed in a gap in the cobbles. My chair doesn’t have a seatbelt and I can’t tell you the amount of times that my wheelchair has come to an unexpected halt and my body, well… just hasn’t 🤣

    I forgot to mention the way that I actually approach cobblestones… I usually tip myself back onto two wheels and ‘wheelie’ my way slowly across the cobbles. I know that this is not advisable though 😝
