“I’m in a field, which I know is random but I thought I’d never be able to come to a place like this in a wheelchair,” he explained. “And then I passed one and said I’ll give it a go.”

Goodwin then pans the camera to the front of his wheelchair to feature a third wheel. “I have this thing on the front of my wheelchair to deal with a little bit of rough ground,” he continues, noting that the extra wheel assists him when traversing uneven terrain.

Goodwin ended the video on an inspiration note, telling his followers to “never assume you can’t do something, give it a go.”
