What we do

Let’s work together and make the mountains more accessible!

We provide knowledge and information about how to make trails and bike parks accessible for people riding adaptive mountain bikes. We also raise awareness of adaptive mountain biking and encourage people with disabilities to get out and enjoy the nature.

We give information through online meetings, mail or we can meet at your location. We also travel around to test trails and afterwards we post adaptive trail guides. Our service is free of charge. Every summer we arrange bike camps for adaptive riders.
