That fancy contraption is The Duet and one of my most favorite inventions for the special needs community since it can be used for children up to adults!! Their website even shares THIS PDF for raising funds to acquire the one and only Duet Wheelchair Bicycle Tandem. Let us know if you manage to get your bottom in the seat of one of these... but be sure you wear a helmet (I'm a little concerned that the above picture, from their website, does not show the biker or passenger with helmets! eeeK!)
May not be suitable for littler loves... like many of our little "bees" who are toddler to preteen in majority. Have no fear, there are solutions for them too! I know most of you have seen the roll-behind bicycle trailers, so I'll save a little time by just letting you know that is a great option... set a child's tumbleform/feeder seat in the seatbelt and you're ready to roll! And just a tip, your roll will be smoother if the tires are rubber and fatter than the average bike tires!
Some other options for little people include (click the links under the pics to check out the websites for more details):
and you can score this inexpensive alternative to typical adapted trikes that carry the label "for special needs" and an automatic heftier price tag:
And my personal favorite are the Amtryke adapted tricycles from AMBUCS, since they're a great personable company and help with fundraising to achieve this mode of mobility for your little person. My own little man, Brayden, had actually just received his... but sadly was never able to give a roll before being called on his mission to heaven. SO, it will be up for bid in our silent auction at our Summer of Success: Global Hydranencephaly Foundation Conference in Dallas, Texas June 14-16. Check out details HERE and get your rooms booked, flight tickets purchased, and tickets paid for to attend... it will be a grand event that you will not want to miss!!
