Claire Connon has been using a wheelchair for seven years, but every day it's a struggle because of the state of Cambridge's roads and pavements.
So she invited the local MP Julian Huppert MP and councillors to experience it first hand by navigating the city streets in wheelchairs.
Claire's also a Paralympic rower - and is training to be in the GB squad heading to Rio in 3 years time. But she's worried one day she'll do herself an injury that will ruin all her career hopes.
Julian and Claire are now working together to collect signature on a petition calling for more investment and better maintenance of pavements.
