What is Bikes to Go?

Our Bikes to Go Program helps children and adults own their own bike – specifically tailored o meet their needs and abilities.Whether for recreation or therapy, we work with a team of physical therapists to assure the right fit. We have several options to own a bike and work with you to purchase or have your bike funded through our Boundless Bike Giveaway or other funding sources.

What are the goals of this program?

Our goal is to provide people with disabilities with all the classic benefits of riding a bike: mobility, strength, exercise, coordination, interaction with family and friends, and just pure fun! Nearly every rider can be successful, no matter their diagnosis, through our full line of highly adjustable trykes and myriad of adaptive accessories.
