Verbier4All’s summer season is underway
Two bikes, one for kids and one for adults have recently been made available. These acquisitions have been made possible by Verbier’s Belgian community. Their generosity allows the association to offer the freedom of the mountains to persons of limited mobility at a time when, following lockdown, the need to access those big open spaces is greater than ever.
Anyone borrowing Verbier4All’s bikes this summer will benefit from the support and advice of the MTB and e-bike experts at No1 Sports and Backside who have kindly agreed to look after Verbier4All’s bikes and riders. Verbier4All thanks them for stepping up to the plate.
The Trets from Hase Bikes, with two rear wheels and one at the front, is designed for young riders from 1 metre to 1 metre 60cm tall. It can also be attached to an adult bike and used as a trailer. Perfect for a family day out on the gentler mountain trails and for introducing kids and teenagers of limited mobility (neuromuscular disorders, CP, incomplete spinal cord injuries, etc.) to the joys of biking.
The Scorpion Enduro E-bike from HP Velotechnik already has its fans in the Val de Bagnes, largely due to its long wheelbase, large wheels and independent chassis suspension which deliver outstanding comfort. The advanced steering geometry system enables riders to control the trike smoothly and precisely and give it a small turning circle. Whatever the terrain and gradient, riders will have no problem keeping up with fellow bikers.
“Today, Verbier is full of bikers of all types having a great time. Now, thanks to our new Enduro trike and our Trets trailer, even more people will be able to join in the fun and thrills!” commented Valérie Vaucher, President of Verbier4All.

Verbier4All is a charitable organisation created in May 2019, to support people of limited mobility by lending them sports equipment for free so that they can enjoy the wide variety of activities on offer in the resort of Verbier.
