Trike Nairn is a project that brings people together to ride tricycle rickshaws (trikes) around Nairn. Passengers, who have impaired mobility, sit at the front of the trike. The pilot, who does the pedalling, sits at the back. Passengers and pilots enjoy getting out in the fresh air while having a good natter, or just appreciating Nairn’s stunning scenery.

Trike Nairn has launched! On 6 June, residents and staff of Carolton House and Bruach House care homes joined members of the core Trike Nairn team in our first official rides. We travelled along the promenade and the river, enjoying the fine weather, seeing activities on the beach and spotting birds.
There has been a lot of preparation to get the project to this point, so it was a really big day for all involved. We would like to thank our funders, our friends at Green Hive and everyone who helped and believed in the project. Onwards and upwards!

Trike Nairn visits care homes
Over the last two weeks, Trike Nairn have taken their trike to five care homes across Nairn. Residents have had a chance to meet Scooby Doo (our trike) and find out about the project. They have also let us know where they would like to go on the rides.
It's been wonderful for the Trike Nairn team to meet our future passengers. We had lots of fun and can't wait for our pilots to be trained and the rides to begin!

Look out for us around Nairn as we train our pilots to ride the trike so we are ready to welcome our first passengers this summer.
