More mobility on the road due to the duo bike Fun2Go

Cycling is a great way to get exercise and stay mobile and active, not to mention it is very healthy. Cycling on a parallel tandem Fun2Go is also very sociable, because you don't sit behind each other, but next to each other. In the recent past many people have got such a bike and are happy to enjoy mobility again. Find out in this article what you report about the bicycle.

Accessible cycling in the Caritas Centre Olpe

In the Caritas Centre in Olpe, numerous residents waited in the foyer of the senior citizens' house full of excitement and joy. Because your new bike will arrive today. Together with the staff and sponsors they would like to take a look at your new purchase. The Fun2Go three-wheel tandem is intended to bring movement into the everyday life of the senior citizens' centre. It offers enormous advantages for the residents. For example, rider and co-driver can communicate better with each other because they sit next to each other. Since the tandem is a three-wheel tandem, getting on and off is also much easier than with a two-wheel tandem.

Special tricycle tandem brings more mobility

The private initiative 'Hits fürs Hospiz' in Germany supports the promotion of better participation of people with disabilities in everyday life. The association finds solutions that make cycling with a disability (again) possible, for example by means of a Fun2Go tricycle.
 
The 22 year old man from the Bergisch town of Gladbach (Germany) has a great desire to explore the Rhineland and the Bergisch country by bike together with his parents. Unfortunately, his illness has not (yet) allowed this, because his severe physical, motor and linguistic limitations prevent him from participating independently in traffic. With the Fun2Go tricycle tandem a possibility has been found. The duo-cycle makes guided cycling possible for people with a disability. Thanks to the Van Raam pedal support it is possible to cycle without problems, even by one person, and to be guided through the surroundings. He or she can ride along as a passenger and the own steering wheel improves the riding experience, while the belts and back support make it easy to sit down. In this way both the experience and the mobility are trained and the trips in the fresh air and in the company contribute to a good feeling. Read more about this experience in the article on the website in-gl.de (article in German).
