Side-by-side tandem Fun2Go very suitable for care facility
The Van Raam Fun2Go duo bike is a very suitable multi-person bike for the elderly and for care facilities. A big advantage of this bike is that both riders do not have to be in the same physical condition. With the Fun2Go there is one main driver who controls the bicycle, can steer and brake it. The co-driver can cycle at his or her own pace. The Fun2Go always has 8 gears on the driver's side, on the co-driver's side there is the possibility of a freewheel hub, an 8-speed hub, a shiftable freewheel hub or a combination.
With the Fun2Go you sit next to each other, the main driver always has a good view on the co-driver and you can have a nice chat while cycling. Because the Fun2Go has no entry, most people can easily get on the side-by-side tandem. The optional rotatable seat makes this even easier.
Many care facilities have a duo bike, so it is often possible for family to rent or borrow it for a day. Volunteers and caregivers also often go cycling with elderly people from care institutions.
