Welcome to the Disabled Ramblers. We aim to keep this web site up-to-date with photos of our rambles added soon after the event. We also change content regularly so please come back soon.
What We Do
The Disabled Ramblers exists to help mobility-challenged people get back out into the countryside. Able-bodied helpers are welcome to support members and to help with loading scooters and other jobs.
We ramble in all weathers and over a variety of terrain. Our rambles are graded according to difficulty. Some are suitable for shopping buggies and power chairs whilst others need large scooters capable of traveling over rough ground.
We spend a lot of time researching routes and working with the authorities to improve access. Many of our rambles are accompanied by staff from the area. This adds to our enjoyment of the ramble through their local knowledge and the extra security they can often provide.
About 30 rambles are run each year across England and Wales – mostly from March to October.
Loan Scooters Available
We own five large off-road mobility scooters (Trampers) which are available on loan during a ramble. One of these is joystick controlled. They each have stick holders and a bag on the back to carry your lunch and spare coat etc.
A loan scooter must be booked in advance; you cannot just turn up at a ramble and get one.
A donation for the use of a scooter is very welcome as the cost of maintaining and transporting them is rather high!
Each ramble is supported by a fully accessible toilet which is available before, during and after the ramble. The scooter-powered trailer it is carried on can be used to recover another scooter in the rare event of a breakdown during a ramble.
Donations to our charity are always welcome.
