Quote: "There are many exciting opportunities at our EC's, you can try out a Mountain Trike supervised by a fully accredited demonstrator who can talk you through the features and operations while you have a ride."

The Mountain Trike Company, www.mountainbike.com, know how important it is for customers to have the opportunity to try and demo the Mountain Trike and also to allow people to enjoy the Mountain Trike in some beautiful countryside locations in the UK.

With this in mind the Mountain Trike Company launched their first Experience Center (EC) last year with PeddleaBikeAway, www.pedalabikeaway.co.uk, who are a Mountain Bike Trail Center based in the Forest of Dean. Following the success of this center Mountain Trike are delighted to announce the launch of their Scottish Mountain Trike Experience Center in partnership with Progression Bikes, www.progressionbikescotland.com, who are a Mountain Bike Trail Center based in Dunkeld.

Talking about what the Experience Centers can offer Tim Morgan, Managing Director of Mountain Trike says,

'there are many exciting opportunities at our EC's, you can try out a Mountain Trike supervised by a fully accredited demonstrator who can talk you through the features and operations while you have a ride. Alternatively you can hire a trike for half a day or longer and enjoy some of the amazing local trails. A fully accredited demonstrator will be able to explain how to ride and make any adjustments for your hire period before setting off on your adventure. You can also buy a Mountain Trike via the Experience Centers and fully trained staff can guide you through the ordering process. Another option is that if you are already a Mountain Trike owner all our EC's are fully accredited service centers and are able to provide a full range of maintenance and after sales help'.

Adam Flint, Proprietor of Progression Bikes says,

'We are the main Scottish Mountain Trike Experience Center and Representatives and attend various events around Scotland showcasing the Mountain Trike. It is such a fantastic piece of equipment that everyone that has seen it and tried it can see the appeal and its benefits. From disabled shooting and fishing groups to school children that just want to get around site, it has been great to help everyone access the outdoors. We feel that it fits in very well with the other products and services that we offer here at Progression Bikes, we have a hire fleet of bikes, trailers and child seats to enable the whole family to get out and about. As well as uplifts, guiding and coaching we have mobile skills courses that we take to other venues, such as schools, cycling shows and outdoor festivals. It is great to be able to take Mountain Trike with us as it always draws a crowd and everyone seems to know someone that would benefit! It would be great to include them in events, races and expeditions in the future and we have been talking to event organizers about this for 2014'.

Tim goes on to say, 'the plan is to eventually have a number of centers geographically located around the UK and it is great to have these two centers on-board which provide fantastic facilities offering customers and Trike users the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors'.

The Mountain Trike is a revolutionary All-Terrain Manual Wheelchair which has been designed using a masterful blend of unique innovation and drive system with high specification mountain bike technology. It provides wheelchair users with far greater freedom and independence than ever before to travel safely off the beaten track. No other manual wheelchair on the market provides comparable high level of maneuverability and uneven surface performance, practicality and comfort. Despite deep mud and wet ground the unique drive and steering system means your hands stay clean and dry.

The Mountain Trike Company currently distributes and sells direct to customers from their UK business. All Trikes are custom built and come with a 3 year warranty, choice of frame color, adjustable frame, footrest and seat.
