Cycles

All children, regardless of their ability, love to play, and it can be one of the hardest aspects of having a childhood physical impairment to have that love of play impaired. The adapted cycle can address this troubling matter, and let children with disabilities have just as much fun around the block as the other non-disabled kids.

Adapted cycles can create a whole new world of fun and independence for children whose physical abilities are limited by a condition such as cerebral palsy, or for adults who are seeking more exercise, but have trouble doing so because of physical limitation. The ability to bike around the block with the rest of the neighborhood kids is really quite liberating if you were previously unable to do so.

Many companies offer adaptations to their cycles already designed for disabled persons to better suit your child with cerebral palsy. These adaptations may include a backrest; a detachable bar at the back of the bike for a parent to help the child up inclies, or to brake; padded brake handles; foot straps; paddle brakes (to allow children with cerebral palsy who require a larger target area to brake effectively); and custom adaptations.
