Ride with your friends!
Most of us have fond memories of childhood bike rides. At Rifton we believe everyone deserves the chance to ride, especially someone with physical disabilities.
An adaptive tricycle is often medically necessary for someone who cannot walk independently or who sits for long hours in a wheelchair.

"My student received the trunk support and rear steering bar for his tricycle. He is cognitively impaired and blind, and now he can ride just like other children. The rear steer is fantastic and allows him to ride faster. Now his tricycle allows him to be a part of society and join his peers."
