Tours/Hire – Wheelchair Accessible Sidecars & Trikes

Wheelchair Sidecar Hire

There is a Need


Being a parent of a person in a wheelchair, and a lover of motorcycles, it made sense to hire/borrow an accessible motorcycle to try it out. It took no time at all to discover that wheelchair accessible motorcycles, available for hire, are very few and far between.

The Need is Not Being Met


Australia is approximately 4,000 kilometers wide (2,500 miles), and I live on the West Coast. The only Wheelchair Accessible Sidecar that I could find in the whole country was on the East Coast. Wheel Adventures.

With only one provider in a country of 24 million people, I was surprised to realise the need is not being met and that we need to improve our focus on disability services and the options available.

My Plan – Raise Awareness and Find a Solution


It may be too expensive for many people to build their own sidecar. On this page you will find a list of Wheelchair Accessible Sidecars and Trikes for Hire/Loan and I welcome you to add to this list in the comments below.

  1. Amazing, I’m sure there is thousands of disabled people out there who could benefit from the information your website shares with us all. Yes, let’s help give them all the ability to enjoy life and get mobile.

    1. Hi Simone, thank you for your support of Ability Motorcycles and your belief in the cause, to raise awareness of the need for accessibility and independence for all people regardless of ability/disability.

      As you will have read, my hope is that this page becomes, not only a directory of Accessible Tour/Hire motorcycles and accessories, but also a platform to encourage and inspire the carers and families of those being cared for.

      I hope you have a fantastic day. Dave 🙂
