Pedal the Great Outdoors at Castlewellan Forest Park with New All-Ability ICE Trikes
Now there are more ways to enjoy Castlewellan Forest Park’s award winning trails through the addition of two new, all-ability ICE trikes, available from Life Adventure.
Life Adventure, which is based in the Park’s courtyard, has commissioned the special trikes which can be used on all the Park’s trail. The trikes provide comfortable seats and roomier cockpits, easy steering plus easy entry and exit, making it easier for people with limited mobility to control the trike themselves. They are also expedition tough so that they can be used on a variety of terrain and are adaptable for use by all age groups.
Newry, Mourne and Down District Council Chairman, Councillor Mark Murnin said, “We are delighted to support this initiative which relies on the Council’s continuing commitment to maintain the Park’s facilities, including the bike trails. It is fantastic to see the local tourist and recreation businesses in our district investing in assets such as these, which ensure that everyone has an opportunity to get out there and experience the great outdoors.
“The trikes’ special features make it possible for the whole family to pedal Castlewellan’s trails regardless of a member’s age or ability. I want to encourage everyone to have a go to fully understand how adaptable and easy they are – if you can pedal then you can ride these trikes!
Cllr Mark Murnn continued, “It is vital we all take care of our physical and mental health. Exercise and fresh air is proven to help both, therefore the Council is pleased to support any initiative that makes this easier, especially for those who may have limited mobility or living with mental health issues.”
Speaking at the launch, Damien Russell, Fundraising Manager of MYMY added, “We have enjoyed cycling at Life Adventure Centre with a broad range of groups to date – both mental health and physical wellbeing. We welcome the opportunity to extend this to others through the accessibility of the trikes.”
