Something no one has EVER done before in Australia! (video)

Thought I'd give the WA MTB community a small taste and teaser of what off road hand cycling is going to look like. Coming to a trail near you!

For those who haven't heard already, I am raising money for Wheelchair Sports WA to purchase a new handcycle which will give people with physical disabilities equal opportunities to ride off-road as everyone else. Flyer attached.

Hi All!

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've just noticed that 'Mountain Bike Australia' Magazine is now available for digital download on 'Zinio.' I have been quite happy using Zinio for the last few months - particularly a subscription to 'Surfer' & 'Bike' for $9 each.

Bargain.

This is not meant to be a promo! Just letting you all know. The American publication of 'Bike' at $9 for 9 issues is a bargain. (If a few of you are cunning enough, you could share a username/password and share subscriptions across multiple computers/tablets)
