BIKES FOR EVERY BODY - HOME OF THE BUDDY BIKE®
ADAPTIVE CYCLING RESOURCE, ADAPTIVE BIKE SALES, FUNDING INFORMATION
What is adaptive cycling?
Adaptive cycling is riding bicycles, trikes or quads built with alternative structure or modified and adapted to fulfill the specific needs of the rider. With adaptive accessories and a variety of available equipment
we believe there is a bike for EVERY BODY!
Riding a bike is a special right or passage. It provides mobility, exercise, combats obesity, gets riders out into their community, and provides a sense of joy and freedom. For people with disabilities riding a bike may seem impossible but adaptive bicycles allow riders to experience the ride just like every other person.
Riders may have cognitive disabilities such as autism and down syndrome or sight impairment that may prevent them from riding safely on their own, or physical disabilities that may make it difficult to propel or steer a bicycle. Some riders may have balance issues or fear of falling due to injuries, disabilities or age.
At Bikes For Every Body we believe that cycling can promote inclusion and that there is a bicycle for riders of all ages, sizes and abilities.
A variety of adaptive bicycles are available and most riders don't know where to begin. Our goal is to be your one-stop resource for learning about the available adaptive and alternative bikes, trikes, and accessories as well as helping you find places to see, test ride, and rent or buy the bikes.
We also aim to serve as a resource for health care professionals who may prescribe these bikes for riders with disabilities as well as a resource to help riders find funding for adaptive bicycles.
So how do you get started? The first step is finding the right bike, trike or quad to fit your needs.

Which bike is for you?
A variety of adaptive bicycles and accessories are available. Prices vary widely and may range from $70 to $10,000. It is important to pick a bike that fits you and not the other way around! Many riders need help finding the right bike with features that are suitable for their needs.
To help our fans, we are developing a web site feature to provide education about the types of bikes that are available and to help match riders with the bike or trike that will be appropriate for their needs.
