buddy bike logo authorized dealer

Buddy Bike Family is designed to encourage novices and non-riders to cycle. This bike model includes an aluminum frame, a Shimano Nexus internal hub for easy maintenance and pedal-free shifting, the patented dual handlebar set up on the same stem, and Tektro V Captain brakes plus a rear wheel caliper brake for the Stoker.



A single crown rigid fork provides a light ride and easy handling. The Buddy Bike Family size frame offers lower top tubes for easier bike mounting, a lower rear rider seat and shorter overall bike length than the Sport frame. Adult riders under 5'7" may be more comfortable with this bike model. It is highly suggested that adult riders under 5’4” test ride the Buddy Bike.

    Special Needs Families

    The Buddy Bike is a tandem bicycle (bicycle for two) that places the smaller rider in the front seat while the rear rider controls the steering. Its features make the Buddy Bike especially beneficial for children with special needs. The Buddy Bike offers adaptive outdoor recreation and therapeutic activity to those who may not otherwise be able to experience the thrill of riding a bicycle.

    The Buddy Bike can be empowering for riders with special needs. Riding the same bike as the parent, caregiver or teacher lessens the skills and the number of steps necessary to successfully ride a bike.  The front rider has their own handlebars to feel like they are steering without actually having control of the bike and they can contribute to pedaling and propelling the bicycle forward. The rider seated in the front has an unobstructed view for maximum visual stimulation and tactile stimulation in the form of wind on his/her face.

    The seats are close enough for easy communication between the riders making it easier to keep the person with a disability on task without lagging behind, turning a different way or stopping on their own. Many of our customers state that their children are more alert and responsive after riding their Buddy Bike and that they feel that they fit in by being able to do what other kids do. A rider with a autism, down syndrome, sight impairment or other disabilities is able to keep up with family and friends when riding in a group so they are no longer left behind. 

    Riders must be able to sit upright on a standard bicycle seat to ride the Buddy Bike. Riders with severe physical disabilities may not be able to ride the Buddy Bike. Fold-out foot pegs are available for smaller riders to keep their feet out of the way of moving pedals (sold separately). The Buddy Bike can support up to 380 pounds; making it the ultimate family bike that can be enjoyed by riders of all ages and abilities.

    Children with Autism, Down Syndrome, Aspergers, Fragile X, blind / sight impaired, hearing impaired and children with cognitive disabilities. Recent studies are showing that riding a bicycle can reduce tremors in patients with Parkinson's Disease.
