Experiences of special needs bikes

At Van Raam we notice that people who are thinking about a possible purchase of a special needs bike like to read user experiences from others. The best advice about a Van Raam bike comes from the people who cycle on a Van Raam bicycle every day.

For this reason, and because Van Raam can learn a lot from the experiences of our bicycle users, we like to make time to hear, collect and tell the stories of our end users. Read the experiences of Van Raam bicycle users below.

Experiences tricyles for children and adults

You can read several user experiences about the tricycles that Van Raam produces below. A tricycle is often used by people who cannot or do not dare to ride on a regular bike with two wheels. The extra wheel of a tricycle offers these people extra support and stability while cycling. Because of the many options and adjustments that we can add, every Van Raam bicycle is unique!

Experiences wheelchair bikes

If you would like to make a bike trip with two persons, but it’s not possible for one of them to cycle, a wheelchair bike may offer possibilities. With our wheelchair bikes you can still enjoy cycling together, even if the other person is in a wheelchair. At Van Raam we have two different types of wheelchair bikes. With our wheelchair bike OPair you can transport the wheelchair user and the front part of the bicycle can be used as an optional wheelchair. With our wheelchair transport bike VeloPlus, the person in a wheelchair can be placed on the bike and both the driver and the 'co-driver' can enjoy the fresh air.

Read some experiences of these wheelchair bikes below. By clicking on these experiences, you can read the other wheelchair experiences.

Experiences tandems and double rider cycle

A tandem is the right bike for people who can still cycle, but who cannot adequately anticipate traffic, possibly resulting in dangerous situations. Van Raam has both tandems with two and three wheels. In addition, you can choose the option to have a switchable freewheel assembled. This switchable freewheel ensures that the two cyclists can pedal on the tandem independently of each other, with the same speed, or the passenger does not pedal at all.

In addition to the traditional tandems, Van Raam also has a three-wheel tandem at which the cyclists can sit side by side, instead of behind each other. This bike has the name Fun2Go. One person steers and both can pedal. Because the cyclists sit next to each other, communication is easy and people can always see each other. The Fun2Go is used a lot by institutions, homes, private individuals and municipalities with people who are not able to participate in traffic independently any longer.

Curious what end users say about Van Raam’s tandems and double rider cycle? Read the user experiences below. If you click on the experience, you can also read more experiences about the tandems and double rider cycles.
