What is Adaptive Mountain Biking?

What is Adaptive Mountain Biking? Adaptive Mountain Biking (aMTB) encompasses a broad range of events and riders who typically cannot ride a standard mountain bike and require adapted equipment and or trails to suit their physical, intellectual, neurological and sensory abilities. – Break the Boundary

There are varying adaptive mountain bikes available around the world, each designed to meet a riders specific need. Readily established adaptive equipment includes: handcycles, recumbent leg-cycles, bucket Bikes and tandem bikes.

At Kootenay Adaptive, we believe in access to the outdoors, whether by inclusive trail design to allow for traditional 3 wheeled adaptive mountain bikes or by advancements in cycling technology.

Want to learn more about adaptive mountain bikes or give one a demo? Be sure to visit our rental page or contact us for more information.
