Walking bike Alinker alternative

The Alinker walking bike and the Van Raam City walking bike have the same purpose and offer largely the same benefits. You choose a walking bike if a wheelchair or mobility scooter is not (yet) necessary. With a walking bike, walking takes less effort, allowing you to cover longer distances. Your weight is carried by the walking bike, so your leg joints are relieved. A walking bike has no pedals like a regular bike, it is therefore also called a walking aid or mobility bike.

The Van Raam City walking bike is a good alternative to the Alinker walking bike. The City, unlike the Alinker mobility bike, has 2 wheels, making it more compact and very maneuverable. The City walking bike is also made to order, so it is always possible to adjust it to your personal needs.
