Swincar Featured at Reflection Riding

Swincar Featured at Reflection Riding

We are excited about this months newsletter from Reflection Riding! We have very much enjoyed being a part of the Reflection Riding family and sharing our fantastic Swincars with our guests at their beautiful arboretum. Check out the snippet from the newsletter below to see Swincar Featured at Reflection Riding!

“Reflection Riding’s founder John Chambliss created “the Riding” at the height of America’s car culture and marketed the place as a drive-through roadside attraction. Today, you can enjoy a similar experience in a Swincar e-Spider, through our partnership with Adventure Sports Innovation. These electrically powered off-road vehicles provide a very unique driving experience, with a comfortable and stable ride. Swincar e-Spiders make almost no sound, run entirely on electricity and have a very light footprint when it comes to wearing down the roads and causing potholes. With no windshield or enclosed cabin, they’re also the best way (aside from on foot) to see the property and experience the outdoors while getting a view of the entire Reflection Riding loop. Plus, ASI is delighted to work with guests who may have mobility challenges to explore the full park. 

Currently, all Swincar tours are led by a guide from Adventure Sports Innovation. If you meet a Swincar tour while hiking at Reflection Riding, feel free to say hello to fellow explorers! Tour participants will keep an eye out for pedestrians and will try not to startle you as they quietly navigate the campus.Contact us to book a tour as a team-building activity, or book a trip for your family or friends. Tours are typically offered Wednesday-Sunday at 1:30 and 3:30.”

We hope you enjoyed reading about us, and we are looking forward to many more adventures in the future! Be sure to check back for more updates about Swincar Featured at Reflection Riding in the future!

Swincar Mobility Demo Day in Richmond, Virginia

Swincar Mobility Demo Day in Richmond, Virginia

This past Saturday, we had the biggest and most successful Swincar Mobility Demo Day in Richmond (Virginia) with Sportable that we’ve ever had! The best part: no one involved in organizing this demo day met one another in person until the morning of the event. Nobody should reasonably expect a remotely-organized group project to go very well, but Sportable and the York River State Park Rangers were fantastic partners. They put in a lot of work to make this demo day possible and we can’t thank them enough for trusting us and our Swincars. 

Ultimately, the arrangement couldn’t have been any simpler: we brought the cars, Sportable brought the athletes, and York River State Park brought the trails. We arrived nice and early, rode out into the park with the rangers to scout the trails and plan our routes, and then spent the next 8 hours exploring miles of trails with 18 disabled athletes from the Richmond area. 

For us at SwincarUSA, the day provided a number of takeaways and I won’t go through them all here. But I kept hearing one thing from the athletes, and it’s worth mentioning because I’ve gotten similar feedback from our accessibility tours here in Chattanooga. One way or another, disabled Swincar drivers keep saying, “when you’re in one of these, nobody has any reason to look at you differently.” We’ve been struggling to convey this point when we talk to people about Swincars, in part because we don’t want to make assumptions or generalizations about the experiences of people with disabilities. But, we’ve found that even for the most capable wheelchair users, there is something special about driving an “adaptive” vehicle that doesn’t need to be adapted. Once you transfer into the Swincar, you have the same vehicle with the same hand-controls, you receive the same safety briefing, and you have the same exact experience as everybody else. 

Well, the experience was almost the same. In more than two years of giving Swincar tours, I have never seen people tear through mud and water with the gusto of this group of athletes…and by the end of the day the Swincars were caked with the mud to prove it.

Like always, our Swincars got some strange looks from the park’s hikers and mountain bikers, even before the mud. But I can say with confidence that none of those park-goers had any reason to believe that the people in those crazy spider cars had bodies that worked any differently than their own. 

We’re going to try and do a lot more of these demo days. Even when we don’t charge for rides, they’re great visibility and exposure for Swincars, and everybody involved ends up better off for having participated. One day, perhaps through an event like this, we’ll find the right person and the right grants to set up more permanent Swincar recreational therapy programs in cities across the U.S. and Canada. We can’t wait for another Mobility Demo Day with Sportable!

If you’re that person, or if you know that person, give us a shout. We’d love to talk and do what we can to help get a program started. We invite you to learn more about the Swincar and the features of our Mobility model at SwincarUSA.com.

Bringing Teams Together in a Covid World

Bringing Teams Together in a Covid World

Check out this article written by ASI CEO Patrick Molloy featured in Business trend all about bringing teams together in a Covid world!

“In Chattanooga, as vaccines roll out and our public health emergency starts to feel manageable, how are companies planning to bring their employees back together? Many employees have been working remotely for over a year.  Others have been on the front lines facing nervous customers in masks.  How do managers get their employees functioning as a team again, and is it worth considering the value of incorporating well-managed fun into a company’s “back-to-the-office” strategy.

Here at Adventure Sports Innovation, like many local providers of group activities, we’re preparing for the return of corporate team building and team development events, and we’re anticipating that many organizations are going to look for novel ways to ease the transition back to working in person. The challenge of course, is finding ways to encourage fun and connection without encouraging risk.

At ASI we do think it’s possible and we do think it’s worth it. We’ve always built our events around getting outdoors and trying new things, so we’ve always had to spend considerable time thinking about safety and risk management. We equip all of our guests with helmets and other appropriate safety gear, and all of our group excursions, virtual or otherwise, are guided by professionals. None of this prepared us for pandemic risk management, but we were luckier than most, and we found that many of our adventures were easily adjusted to keep people safe and happy. Cleaning happens constantly – of course – and we’ve adjusted policies to allow smaller groups to reserve exclusive access to our facilities for events. However, for larger groups – even as many as 30 participants – we’ve been able to leverage our location on the North Shore to develop new activities that take advantage of the beautiful outdoor spaces along the riverfront.

We have already held our first few small team events of the year and, so far, our system is working well. In fact, the reviews for group events this year have been even better than back in 2019 and early 2020, as everyone is excited to be together again.  Collaborating on topics like “Innovating within your company”, “Overcoming Fears to Success” or “Overcoming Unconscious Bias”, and then playing together for a couple of hours on Little Vehicles around town, VR Simulators, or on our unique Swincar electric off-roaders, seems to be the ice breaker and stress reliever that teams hard-wired throughout the pandemic really need.

Between the safety of our clients and our own concerns for the safety of our facilitators, there’s a lot to consider, but we’ve found that activities as simple as riding electric scooters, e-bikes and mini-Segways together on the Riverwalk can be a great way to remind people that it’s kind of nice to see their team every day. Plus, while under normal circumstances it’s difficult to both bond and be socially distant, we’ve found that riding Little Vehicles together has been a notable exception.

We see the benefits of making something that’s “not-so-normal”, become a part of a company’s “return to normal.” Will the market see it that way? Who knows. But if it does, we’ll be ready for it.”

Time to Hit the Trails!

Time to Hit the Trails!

Winter is behind us and we can hear the trails calling our name! They’re saying, “please put a Swincar on me! Gas-powered ATVs are scary and leave me in bad shape.” At ASI we’ve been riding in our silent Swincars long enough that we can hear the trails, and maybe one day you will too. But for now, they want you to know that if you want your Swincar to arrive in time for the summer riding season, now is the time to order!
Adventure Sports Innovation has recently sold out of all inventory, and have just placed an order for more singles and tandems. Next shipment should arrive in June!  We expect that these will sell out pretty quickly, and now have a pre-order process, so customers can be sure to get their vehicle as soon as it arrives in the USA.  
Swincar now offers three standard configurations in North America for both our single-seat model and our tandem two-seater: the Trail model, the Touring Model and the Mobility Model.   Additional accessories are available too, from solar charging panels to storage cases.   Check out the details on our new website, SwincarUSA.com!

    Hear the trails calling, plan ahead and don’t miss out on the best driving days of the year!

Becky’s Electric Horse

Becky’s Electric Horse

Becky’s Electric Horse

Becky absolutely loves her Swincar. The main reason she loves it so much is because the Swincar is adaptable to her needs. Becky is a paraplegic from a spinal cord injury, so she now has limited mobility.

Becky started riding horses 31 years ago for physical therapy rehab, and now owns property called the Castle Canyon that has a variety of riding paths already established. Becky has missed being able to ride around on the trails on horseback, so she started looking into different vehicles to be able to move around her property. She tested out many different vehicles and was never fully satisfied until she purchased her Swincar in April of 2020.

Since getting the Swincar Becky rides 5 days a week for several miles a day. The main things that she loves about her Swincar is that it’s very easy to transfer from her wheelchair into the Swincar, the autobrake function, how quiet it is, and the comfort of the Swincar. She calls her Swincar her “electric horse” because she is now able to get around her property in a safe and fun way, just as she did when she was able to ride her horse.

In a recent interview with ASI, Becky told us, “What I like about the Swincar is that I feel safe. It’s fun to go outside in the woods with no restraints, fast or slow. It’s quiet. It’s easy to go forward at any desired speed without the controls being jerky. This is such an improvement from my old 4 wheeler. Braking down hills with the old 4 wheeler gave me severe hand pain, especially in the middle of the night. The Swincar saved my hands! No braking required, even when going down steep hills. Uneven ground – I feel safe – never feel in danger of tipping to the side. It is so easy to get on and off, with just a little help. It is a great safe way to have fun with friends outside.”

We’re thrilled that the Swincar has helped Becky to get her mobility and freedom again. Which features of the Swincar will be the most valuable to you?  The Swincar is adaptable to many different needs. Contact Adventure Sports Innovation to learn more….
