Wheeleez™ Partners with Point Reyes
National Seashore to Enhance Accessibility

In an exciting development for beach accessibility, Wheeleez™, a leading provider of all-terrain and beach mobility solutions, has recently joined forces with Point Reyes National Seashore (Marin County. CA USA) to introduce their renowned Sandcruiser® beach wheelchairs at Drakes Beach. This initiative is part of a broader commitment by the US National Parks Service to ensure that all visitors, regardless of mobility challenges, can enjoy the natural beauty of America’s coastal areas.

Point Reyes National Seashore is an important nature preserve, known for its stunning landscapes and rich biodiversity, attracts over 2.5 million visitors yearly. However, the rugged terrain and sandy California beaches can pose significant accessibility challenges. This partnership with Wheeleez™ represents a crucial step towards breaking down those barriers and promoting inclusivity.

The Wheeleez™ Sandcruiser® is specially designed for outdoor environments like Drakes Beach. Equipped with unique, soft pneumatic tires that glide smoothly over sand and uneven surfaces, the Sandcruiser® ensures that all visitors can experience the beach without limitation. These wheelchairs are durable and comfortable, providing users with a safe and enjoyable experience.

As part of the launch, visitors to the Ken Patrick Visitors Center at Drakes Beach will now find Sandcruiser® wheelchairs available for free, making this scenic beach more accessible. The availability of such high-quality mobility aids demonstrates Wheeleez™ and the National Parks Service’s commitment to inclusivity and accessibility in natural environments.

This partnership highlights how collaborations between private companies and public entities can significantly improve public access and enjoyment. By equipping Point Reyes with these advanced mobility aids, Wheeleez™ and the National Parks Service are setting a benchmark for accessibility in natural preserves nationwide.

As we look forward to the warmer months, this new partnership stands as a beacon of progress, promising all visitors an equal opportunity to explore and appreciate the beauty of Point Reyes National Seashore.
