How to transport your Mountain Trike wheelchair

How to transport your Mountain Trike So, your shiny new Mountain Trike has arrived or you are thinking about purchasing a Mountain Trike.  The freedom and independence means you can now access the park, travel to nature trails, woodlands, the beach  – all very well if these are on your doorstep but a question we often get asked is, ‘how do I transport my Trike’?
