PRESS RELEASE: Trail Holistics and Tara Llanes Industries
We are proud to announce the release of our collaboratively created aMTB Trail Design Guidelines. With a focus on building barrier free trails for adaptive riders, the guidelines optimize aMTB trail design to provide a safe & fun trail experience for riders with spinal cord injuries.
These guidelines, in Tara’s words, are meant to be “simple, un-complex”; easy to understand. With detailed schematics on corner design, including optimum radius and cumulative gradients, the document provides recommendations for bridge design, chicanes and access considerations. An overview of spinal cord injuries and rider physiology provides trail designers and builders with a better understanding of SCI and the specific needs of differently abled riders. The document has already been shared with advocates and government throughout Canada and the U.S., propelling the adaptive movement in the spirit of inclusivity.
The guidelines can be downloaded for free at trailholistics.com/amtb
