Two person bike

The bicycle is a popular means of transport. Besides the normal two-wheel bike, you see more and more special or adapted bikes in the streets. For example, more and more use is being made of a two person bike, such as the Fun2Go duo bike, also called the side-by-side tandem, and the wheelchair transport bike VeloPlus. A duo bike (two person bicycle) is the ideal bike for elderly people who can no longer cycle independently, blind people, people with balance problems, people with disabilities and people who are wheelchair dependent. However, there are more bicycles for two people available. Discover in this article the eight 2 person bicycles in the Van Raam range.

The three pedal assistance modes are individually adjustable so that you always have the right support. Extra special about the electrical system is that you have the possibility to cycle backwards.

Delivery Fun2Go side by side bike for Raisin Hope Foundation

Side-by-side tandem for the Zilvermeeuw

Activity center the Zilvermeeuw (provider of daytime activities, labor and labor training to people aged 18 and over with a physical handicap, chronic illness and/or non-born brain injury) has been awarded an electric side-by-side tandem by the Raisin Hope Foundation (RHF). The THF supports victims of traumatic brain injuries and their loved ones.
The side-by-side tandem at the Zilvermeeuw is the first special needs bike which was entirely powder coated in the RHF green color by Van Raam. With the duo bike, the RHF foundation wants to stimulate its target group to move because this has a demonstrably very positive effect on rehabilitation and staying vital. Cycling is a perfect activity for this purpose and because cycling on a conventional two-wheel bicycle is not possible for everyone with brain damage, the duo bike is the ideal means of transport.
