An adaptive tricycle built for two, it offers everyone, individuals with special needs and their friends and family, the chance to get some exercise in the great outdoors. The rear driver pedals and steers the bike. The front rider contributes to pedaling as he or she is able. Even if they aren’t pedaling, the front rider can enjoy outdoor mobility and recreation. The Tandem is appropriate for front riders 7 years old and up. Front riders with mild to significant physical impairment can be safely accommodated. The Tandem is truly a bike for life. If it is purchased when a child is young and modifications are needed for growth of the front rider, the frame accommodates both child and adult size front rider seats. There is no need to replace the tricycle, just the seat. Adaptive bikes are powerful therapy tools that can help improve a rider’s strength, endurance, and coordination. They are also an extremely effective tool for promoting inclusion.
