Cimgo

Access to the mountains for everyone? It's now possible in Rougemont thanks to the Cimgo

People with disabilities or reduced mobility can enjoy a new summer activity in the Pays-d'Enhaut: the Cimgo, a unique all-terrain wheelchair for outings in nature. An experienced guide controls the motion of the machine using handlebars and disc brakes while the passenger is comfortably seated in a bucket seat mounted on a fully secure four-wheel chassis. Participants can discover places which were hitherto inaccessible and accompany family and friends on paths with varying degrees of steepness.

20 days throughout the summer
The offer was launched for the first time in July 2017 in Rougemont, at the initiative of the Capdenho and Différences Solidaires associations. "Last year's experience was conclusive," says Éveline Charrière, President of Capdenho. With the funds we have raised, our goal is to offer another 20 days this summer." Two different routes will be chosen depending on the desires and capabilities of the participants. The only cost for participants is the climb (trailer or mechanical lift). Capdenho is in charge of finding funds to cover the additional costs associated with disability, namely the provision of a driver, the Cimgo and scooters for accompanying riders.
