Adapted bike project Pedder in Bremen
In Bremen the bicycle is almost part of the city scene, it's hard to imagine a town without a bicycle. Tthe bicycle is often used to get from one point to another in the city.In order to ensure mobility for people with a mobility restriction or people who for various reasons are no longer able to cycle, the ADFC in Bremen (Allgemeiner Deutscher Fahrrad-Club stands for General German Bicycle Club) has set up the special bicycle project "Pedder" where adapted bikes can be rented free of charge. Sven Eckert, the managing director of the ADFC Bremen, describes it like this: "Pedder makes mobile! We are happy that we can make mobility possible for everyone with our free special bikes - even for people who find it difficult or even impossible to cycle alone due to physical handicaps". The name "Pedder" comes from the Low German "pedden" which means to pedal. In addition, Pedder is a first name in Northern Germany, admittedly rather rare. Since the ADFC has another bicycle project called "Fietje", which is also a first name, Pedder was the perfect addition.
Rent a bike for free in Bremen
Mobility in Bremen can be supported by the provision of free special bikes, such as the OPair wheelchair bike, the VeloPlus wheelchair transport bike and the side-by-side tandem Fun2Go from Van Raam. You can now rent and try out special bikes with Pedder at various locations in Bremen free of charge. The project is supported by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety as part of the national climate protection initiative and our Van Raam dealer TheraMobile also supports the project as a rental station.
