Last year I posted news of the first motorised TrailRider in the world. The video below shows what a dramatic difference this can make - the same slope, the same passenger, the same speed. Two sherpas with a motor, five without.
That occasion was the first live trial of this invention and we came up with two quite significant issues. John Kenwright, in his true style, has resolved both of them as the photos show.
This motorised TrailRider is available now at Buchan Caves. The contact details are in the Directory - in the Cape Conran entry.
The last, and perhaps best, bit is that John has passed the design information on to the Disability Foundation in Vancouver who manufacture the TrailRider.
Henceforward they will be adding a motorised version to their catalogue! Yay John!!

back to zero. Much safer

chair, it obscured the rear sherpa's view of the kickstand
