Zoomability will participate in the project “Vision Lofsdalen” in the Swedish mountain area by assisting in developing new mountain bike tails. The project will create a new area for mountain biking where the goal also is to have Zoom certified trails.
This project is possible by a grant from the Swedish Growth Agency (European Regional Development Fund), Region Jämtland Härjedalen and Härjedalen Municipality. The 10.7 million SEK grant will be used during the three-year period that the project lasts.
As part of the project, a new trail will be built during the summer of 2020 that is adapted for Zoom Uphill, but Zoomability will also take the opportunity to “Zoom-certify” the current routes where the Zoom can progress. In this way, the beautiful nature of Lofsdalen can be made more easily accessible to people who otherwise are confined to a wheelchair.
Already on March 20-22, Zoomability will be participating with its Zoom Uphill in Lofsdalen’s booth at the Swedish Bicycle Fair in Stockholm, and give a taste of what is to come.
This is the second project Zoomability participates in to make Swedish nature more accessible, after that at Hunne- and Halleberg. This is probably the start of a trend that will strengthen the Swedish tourism industry and give the facilities already investing in better accessibility a competitive advantage.
