All-Terrain Wheelchair Demo Day

20th September 2023

Gisburn Forest  near Slaidburn will be the venue for an all-terrain wheelchair demonstration day on Wednesday 11th October, offering a great chance for people to try vehicles out for themselves.

Terrain Hopper at Wood End Farm

There is such a variety of specialist all-terrain wheelchairs now available, which have been carefully designed to be able to travel over a wide range of different terrains. These terrains can include things like muddy woodland trails, gravel paths, wet grass, tree roots and uneven ground, hills and even mountains!

This is a free event where representatives from several all-terrain wheelchair providers - along with members of the National Landscape and Access the Dales team - will be on-hand to assist you in exploring the opportunities of these fantastic off-road wheelchairs – including Tramper, Paratreker and TerrainHopper.

The Forest of Bowland National Landscape team have recently partnered with Access the Dales

to explore making the inaccessible accessible and to break down the barriers that prevent people living with disabilities enjoying the great outdoors, either independently or with their friends and family.Tramper Taster Day at Gisburn Forest

We have a number of hub locations in the National Landscape where all-terrain wheelchairs are available to hire and can be used along designated trails, including a Tramper which is available to hire from the café at Gisburn Forest provided by Champion Bowland. Come along to this free demo day to find out more about these exciting opportunities.

The demo day will run between 10am and 3pm at the Forestry England site at Gisburn Forest Hub. There is a pay-and-display car park with disabled spaces, an accessible toilet and also a café on-site where you can purchase refreshments.

Please follow the link below to book your demo slot, which will give you an hour to explore the different vehicles, and an opportunity to speak directly with the manufacturers.  Please note that participants must be aged 14+ to use the vehicles and under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.

For more details please email or phone 01200 448000.

We look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful surroundings at Gisburn Forest.
