Enjoying the electric side-by-side tandem bike
The longest-served resident, Doris Immell, was the chosen one. She was the one to cut the ribbon to officially use the double rider cycle. Their new bike allows residents with mobility issues to enjoy fresh air, get some exercise and increase their mental and physical health.
The side-by-side tandem of Park Centre is purchased from Van Raam dealer All Ability Cycles. All Ability Cycles is one of our dealers in the USA. They sell all kinds of special needs bikes, including from Van Raam. All Ability are established in Jefferson, Iowa.
Thanks to the electric pedal support, the residents can easily cycle for a longer time. The electrical pedal support is developed by Van Raam and is called the Silent System. This system is very easy to use. The motor is, as the name says, fully noiseless and powerful. The batteries are of high quality and it is possible to cycle forwards and backwards. With the Van Raam smartphone app, the residents can change the bike settings and they can view their current cycle data.
