We believe here at Adaptive Cycling that all families with special needs children or adults struggle to find recreational activities that they can enjoy together. Outdoor activities are especially challenging along with finding an activity that allows everyone with special needs or not, to participate at their own level of exertion. Even adults riding with typical children or other adults have to adjust their effort to stay near each other. This is where the Family Cycling Center of all members participating concept comes from. By putting multiple riders on one cycle, be they special needs or typical, every rider can enjoy riding at the effort that comes natural and not have to worry about riding away from the other family members like they would on single bicycles.
Adaptation needs can be as simple as riding a Buddy Bike or Co-Motion Periscope tandem that places a child capable of sitting on an upright bike to the extreme of having to place the individual in a recumbent seat with a 5 point harness and leg braces. This leads to the fact that the bikes or trikes we have are adaptations in themselves compared to typical single bicycles. Then we can use many other devices to help practically everyone be active riding participants. Refer to the Bikes page for descriptions of the bikes along with the devices here.
