|As a Not-For-Profit our unique approach is that we approach disability cycling from cycling - not from disability. We are bike geeks who want everybody to be able to enjoy cycling. And we work on bike shop profit margins not inflated disability industry margins. This keeps our prices down - which means we sell more bikes. Win win.
For the less severely disabled, it’s often possible to take a regular bicycle and adapt it with off-the-shelf components. At the other end of the scale, those with profound disabilities will require a much more complex machine, often a tricycle or quad with, perhaps, extra low gearing, fixed wheel transmissions, restricted steering, harnesses, special seats, pedal platforms and even specially made components with non-standard dimensions. But whatever the disability, the aim is always to select the machine which most closely meets the individual’s needs and then fine-tune and adapt it to suit their particular requirements.
