Mapes of Millport is proud to support the mobility charity Cycling Without Age Scotland (CWAS).

The Cumbrae chapter of CWAS was launched in September 2021 and aims to provide local residents and island visitors who have mobility issues with life-enhancing opportunities through greater access to the outdoor.

Passengers travel in 3 wheeled Trishaw bikes ridden by trained pilots. Traveling at walking speed, the trishaw journeys allow passengers time to take in the beautiful surroundings, sea views, and resident wildlife. Those confined to a wheelchair are not excluded as we have a specially adapted wheelchair Trishaw.

So if you are planning a bike ride whilst on the island (and who doesn’t) here is an opportunity to be joined by a family member or friend who wouldn’t normally have that chance. If you would like to arrange a ride or just like to find out more about CWAS service please contact Eileen McAulay for details.

You can contact Eileen on:

Mobile 07772075295 or

Booking in advance is essential to make sure a pilot is available on the day you are planning your cycle adventure. CWAS looks forward to helping you make a day to remember.
