The Shuswap TrailRider Adaptive Adventure Society from Salmon Arm brought two TrailRiders to Mount Revelstoke on July 26.
A TrailRider is a piece of adaptable equipment for less-mobile individuals. The device allows then to access wilderness trails. The TrailRider has one wheel with a seat for the rider and is propelled with two ‘sherpas’, one in the front, one in the back and can also be fitted with two additional sherpas for steep terrain.
The Eva Lake hike was planned over a number of months and consisted of 20 volunteers from Salmon Arm and Revelstoke. The Society coordinated this event to promote public awareness that less-mobile individuals can access the beautiful trail systems that exist around our communities.
This trip was made possible by the volunteers and their tremendous teamwork.
The society has organized similar trips to other lakes and recreation areas in our region.
