TrailRider

 

Affectionately described as "a cross between a wheelbarrow and a rickshaw," the TrailRider is actually a precision-made vehicle, engineered to the highest specifications.

Its versatility and reliability are established elsewhere on this site, but the TrailRider design also allows folding, so that it can be transported in a hatchback, SUV or minivan. The TrailRider weighs 23 kg, and folds down to a size of 172 cm x 82 cm x 61 cm.  In addition, The TrailRider can accommodate anyone over 1.2m tall - an insert is used to make it more comfortable for riders under 1.5 ft.

More information on the TrailRider and access for all abilities is available on the Parks Victoria web site.

Also check out the TrailRider Tales blog for news and discussion about the progress of the TrailRider in Australia.
