There’s plenty of information on mountain bike trails, but no one knows what is accessible for a mountain trike. It’s up to us to take the trikes out and test the trails. Here’s a guide to get things ‘rolling’.

Wheely-Friendly Rating System

Break The Boundary has developed a rating system specifically for people with mobility challenges who are unable to ride a standard push bike. The system is designed as a guide only to the general suitability and accessibility for users of handcycles and may vary for individuals based on their ability. The rating should be used in conjunction with the trail notes in the tables below and official websites of the trail/ trail condition updates.
