Being mobile again thanks to Van Raams special needs bike
"Just” going for a ride was not an option. For Max this is a dream that lies in the far distance, because the 16-year-old Max from northern Germany has autism. But sometimes, dreams come true, and now for the first time "just" going on his bike and start cycling has become reality. Now he can simply sit on the three-wheeled Fun2Go special needs custom bike and, together with his mother, who is always there as a guide, explore the area, go to friends and much more.
Through a fundraising campaign, in this case a fundraising run by the Müritzer Laufsportverein, more than 9,000 Euros were collected. The bike shop in Waren was able to order the bike from Van Raam, completly adapted to Max's needs and also equipped with pedal support.
In addition, Max and his mother can also enjoy free maintenance from Zweirad Karberg for over three years, as he will take this as part of the donation. Now Max is ready to cycle through the world.
Company owner Ulf Karberg explains why this is the right vehicle: "We found the Fun2Go. It is a three-wheel tandem on which users sit next to each other. One person steers, both can pedal and have a good conversation. With the electric motor, the cyclists have pedal assistance, so they can always cycle well without much effort". (Source: Nordkurier)
