What is The Buddy Bike?

The Buddy Bike® is the alternative to tandem cycling, tag-a-longs, trikes and infant seats. The Buddy Bike is the inline tandem bicycle (bicycle for two) that places the stoker (smaller rider) in the front seat. A patented handlebar setup allows the rear rider to control the steering. Most cycling options place the smaller rider in the back which can be risky with a small child or a child with special needs. The pedals work together on the same drive chain offering physical activity for both riders. The Buddy Bike is shorter in length than a typical tandem, making it easier to store and transport, and has a lower front seat so both riders can safely enjoy the view.

The Buddy Bike isn't just for kids. It 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. For smaller riders who can’t reach the pedals, optional fold-out foot pegs offer a place to rest their feet out of the way of the pedal path. Please note that rides must be able to sit upright and balance on a standard bicycle seat to ride the Buddy Bike. See our Products & Pricing page for accessories (sold separately).

The features of the Buddy Bike offer adaptive outdoor recreation and therapeutic activity to riders with cognitive or minor physical disabilities who may not have the strength to pedal a bike alone or who may not be able to ride a bicycle safely on their own.
