The Buddy Bike -
The Alternative Tandem Bicycle
The Buddy Bike® is the alternative
inline tandem bicycle (bicycle for two) that places the
stoker (smaller rider) in the front seat while the rear
rider controls the steering. The Buddy Bike has a lower
front seat so both riders can safely enjoy the view. It
is shorter in length than a typical tandem, making it easier
to store and transport. The Buddy Bike is CPSC safety-rated for up to 380 pounds;
making it the ultimate family bike that can be enjoyed by
riders of most ages and abilities. The features of the Buddy
Bike offer adaptive outdoor recreation and therapeutic
activity to riders with cognitive or physical
disabilities who may not be able to ride a bicycle
safely on their own or who do not have the strength to
pedal a bike alone. The Buddy
Bike allows riders with autism, down syndrome, sight
impairment or other disabilities to experience the
thrill of riding a bicycle with the whole family. They
are no longer left behind!
