Recumbent Bicycles, Tricycles & Stationary Recumbent Fitness/Rehab Bikes

Just what the doctor ordered?

 

Don't let physical limitations stop you from enjoying the outdoors on a bike!

 

Are you wishing you could be riding a bike again? A recumbent bike or trike just may be what the doctor ordered!

We stock many bike and trike designs that are far more adaptable and accessible than the typical upright two-wheeled bicycle concept. Maybe a new recumbent bike or trike would bring back your freedom to ride.

 

Over the years we have adapted / fitted recumbent trikes for riders who use a walker or forearm crutches. Riders who have lost the use of one arm or who need help transferring from a wheelchair into their trike. Exercise is important if you are in peak health and even more important if your health peaked quite a while ago.

Some of our customers are recovering from multiple hip and knee replacements, spinal fusions, traumatic brain injury, amputation, car or motorcycle accidents heart attacks or stroke.

Recumbent Trikes may help you set aside the walker or wheelchair if only for a little while

 

We have customers who successfully ride in spite of nerve disorders, balance ailments, MS, ALS and Parkinson's. Some were serious bike racers, fitness buffs and commuters. Others are reformed couch potatoes, dieters and even folks just out of cardiac & post-operative rehab. A recumbent bike - trike is working for them; it may well work for you. We have fitted recumbents for riders from age 9 to 90. Recumbents are a very versatile, adaptable & adaptive means of comfortable exercise, rehab and transportation.

 

Adaptive pedals and cane holders let Gary ride again! Personally I find working with these customers extremely rewarding. You may call them differently able, handicapped or physically challenged, I call them overcomers. When life gave them every excuse to sit down and feel sorry for themselves they refuse to be counted out of the game. They don’t expect riding to be as easy for them as it is for their friends and neighbors, but what is anymore? My hat is off to them! Now how can I help you!

 

Adaptive Trikes & Tricycles


Tricycles have low speed stability unmatched by any bike. They are easier to get on, start, stop and get off than bikes. Some of these trikes are low, light and sporty, they are called “tadpole” trikes.

 

Tadpole tricycles have two front wheels and put you in a more reclined aerodynamic position. They have hand controls at your sides and are smaller, easier to transport in a vehicle. Some tadpoles even fold to fit in your trunk. Many riders find the tadpole trikes preferable for longer, more challenging rides. The other type of trikes is “delta” trikes with two rear wheel. The delta trikes are higher and easier to get into and out of and put you in a more upright seated position. Most delta trikes are less expensive and more suitable for shorter rides. All trikes offer greater low speed stability for riders with a wide variety of disabilities, making it possible for you to enjoy bike paths, trails, and roads. Your hand controls can be at thigh height or raised to a traditional handle bar level. Adaptive Recumbent Trikes

 

A recumbent trike may be all you need to get out on the road again. I think you will be surprised how easy and comfortable they are to ride.

 

Adaptive Recumbent Bikes Bicycles

 

Those with mobility impairments, who have good balance and prefer two wheels may find the back support and the wide seat of a recumbent bike attractive.

 

Adaptive Recumbent Bikes Various designs accommodate people in an upright yet reclined seated position or a more recumbent mode.

The hand controls can be at thigh height or raised to a traditional handle bar level. A foot-pedaled recumbent trike may be all you need to get out on the road again, and will likely be more comfortable than you expect.

 

 

Recumbent Tandem Bicycle ~ Tricycle

 

With a recumbent tandem bike or trike you bring a companion who can help with balance, control and navigation.

 

Blind and visually impaired riders can enjoy tandem cycling with a sighted driver. Three wheeled recumbent tandems can remove the challenge of balance for both riders. This can be especially important when cognitive or coordination limitations are factors. Tandem Recumbent Trikes

 

Recumbent Trikes with Tandem Couplers

 

Recumbent trikes with tandem couplers

Some recumbent trikes can be “tandemized” by adding a coupler. This gives you a tandem with one driver and two riders who can pedal, coast and shift gears independently. Couples can ride attached through traffic or hilly sections where one needs help and then ride separate on bike paths where there is no traffic or hills.

 

 

Even some people using wheelchairs can ride leg powered trikes. If you have limited use and strength in your legs an adaptive trike may be just right for you. You can build leg strength and flexibility while enjoying the outdoors. These bikes are a wonderful way to get out of a wheelchair and back to the joy, freedom and benefits of exercising outdoors.

 

We have seen handicapped children do particularly well on adaptive trikes. One family brought their 9 year old son to test ride some trikes. When he walked in our shop with two forearm crutches I was cautiously optimistic. The coordination of pedaling was a challenge for him but he had no lack of motivation! His folks bought a Sun delta trike hoping he would be able to ride along with his Mom on her fitness walks.

Recumbent Trikes for children with disabilities or handicaps

 

A month later they were back to buy a bike for Mom because he was doing so well she said “I can’t run ten miles!”

 

Recumbent Trikes for smaller riders For younger riders under 4 feet tall there is the Hase Trets recumbent trike. Though it is a bit pricey it can be a great option for smaller riders.

Another nice option is that it can be towed behind most bicycles as a trailer.

Or it can be ridden as an independent trike as seen in this photo.

 

 

   

 

Custom adaptive options to fit particular needs


One Hand Controls

 

For riders with particular challenges we can adapt most recumbent bikes and trikes so that you can operate both brakes and all the gears with on hand.

 

Custom Low Gearing

 

Custom extra-low gears give you extra-easy pedaling. Combined with the stability of a trike this gives you will be able to climb most paved hills slowly but easily.

 

Short Crank Arms

 

If your knees or hips are recovering after surgery or trauma stiffness or limited flexion can me a problem. We can set up a recumbent bike or trike to help you overcome this allowing full 360 degree rotation of the crank arm. This can extend your rehab program into the great outdoors! Fitting shorter length crank arms allows most rehab riders to peddle even with restricted joint movement. Pedaling a full rotation often helps decrease joint swelling and can increase your mobility and strength. Al this form a fun outdoor aerobic activity! We stock crank arms as short as 145 mm (170 or 175 are standard.) If your knees get sore from riding a shorter crank often helps. Riders who are under ~5’4” tall or who have trouble getting their legs over the top of the pedal stroke can benefit from shorter crank arms too.

Test riding is best!


Test riding is the best way to see what type of bike/trike works for you and which model you enjoy most. Spend a few days if you like. Try them in a parking lot, on back roads and up hills till you know what you want. If you just can’t come try them we can work with you by phone and email then ship one to you.
