All Ability Access

Through this project we will provide all ability wheelers and associated storage to address inequalities in access to some of North Ayrshire’s beautiful open spaces and green spaces. The project will be centred initially at Irvine Beach Park and Eglinton Country Park where we will be working closely with the coastguard and rangers. The wheelers are designed so that they can travel over soft sand and mud/gravel areas therefore giving mobility impaired, and associated carers, the opportunity to experience previously inaccessible beach and park sites. This will be hugely beneficial for mobility impaired and wheelchair users as it will allow access to natural beauty spots along the Coastline and heritage sites in Eglinton Park that would not previously have been possible.

Simple storage units at each of the sites above will allow the wheelers to be stored and maintained by staff on site. Wheelers will be promoted to relevant groups and a booking system will be set up to hire any of the all ability bikes

Did you know, being outdoors is a great way to keep healthy and improve our mental and emotional well-being. By surrounding ourselves with clean air, wildlife and the beautiful natural scenery of our environment, this can be a great way to recharge our batteries!
