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.

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.
The Buddy Bike also offers educational opportunties and physical education for homeschooling families.
