The Fun2Go side by side tandem is a custom bike designed especially for people who are limited in their mobility. On this tandem two can cycle side by side. The entrance to this tricycle is completely accessible, which makes it easy and comfortable to get on. The seats are wide enough so that both riders have enough space. Independently of the other, each can pedal for himself and according to his strength.

The Fun2Go tricycle is particularly suitable as a bicycle for blind people to make an excursion together and keep moving, that the driver takes control and 100% responsibility. So the blind person can always cycle along safely and this ensures recreational fun for two.
