Off road HANDCYCLING down under!
Has anyone come across anyone using an OFFROAD HANDCYCLE in Perth or Australia in general?
Most of you won't know what an offroad handcycle is or looks like, so check out the picture I have attached. There are different variations but this is the most robust design and price I have found on the market (Poland).
Simply speaking, its a tricycle primarily for those with no, or limited leg function. I broke my back 4 years ago MTB in QLD and will be getting one of these beasts mid 2013 and hitting the tracks again before my 5 year mark.
I know there's at least one of these coming to Australia (manufacturers won't say exactly where) so I wanted to touch base with anyone who has a disability and wants to change the way we ride in AU. Also, want to get some of these larger events thinking about 'adaptive MTB' categories/class so that it holds true when they say thing like "for riders of all levels".
Any leads or tips would be appreciated!
