The central place for TrailRider info and discussion in Australia.
The TrailRider is a one-wheeled cross between a wheel barrow and sedan chair that allows several helpers (sherpas) to guide a disabled passenger along a normal, rough mountain track.

These are interesting times (understatement) and ones in which I am taking the unprecedented step of circulating an online petition. 3.3 million had signed at the point that I did. Let us make it 10 million!
Over 3 million have signed the open letter to Trump -- including you! With the announcement of the Muslim ban, it's time to make this the worldwide symbol of resistance -- share it everywhere, and help hit 4 million!
With the Muslim ban, Trump has shown that the worst fears about his Presidency are true.
This is the start. He's threatening to tear down international agreements. He's threatened to start a nuclear arms race. Didn't believe it before? Believe it now.
And this is happening in all our countries. We must build the global movement to stop it. Over 3 million have already signed the open letter, below, from the world to Trump, and it's been covered across major media. Today it becomes a symbol of resistance. Help it become an even more powerful message -- forward it widely and sign below:
The world rejects your fear, hate-mongering, and bigotry. We reject your support for torture, your calls for murdering civilians, and your general encouragement of violence. We reject your denigration of women, Muslims, Mexicans, and millions of others who don’t look like you, talk like you, or pray to the same god as you.
Facing your fear we choose compassion. Hearing your despair we choose hope. Seeing your ignorance we choose understanding.
As citizens of the world, we stand united against your brand of division.
As Americans take to the streets in resistance, we can show them the world is at their back. Instead of dividing us, let's make Trump a force to bring us together, to fight for everything we love.
