Free tandem hire for disabled people
I know this is an old thread but it comes up first in Google under "disabled tandem", so I thought I'd add to it.
Charlotte's Tandems is a UK charity that lends tandems to disabled people for free. We have lots of info on our website www.charlottestandems.weebly.com
. Please have a look and let anyone know who might like to borrow tandem from us.
QUOTE=JDP;92650]I just joined the forum and have recently started bike commuting.
I've been wanting to get a tandem for me and my wife. She has a disability in one leg and walks with a limp. She used to ride an upright bike as a kid (despite the leg) but she can't do it anymore.
I imagine that it will mainly be me chauffering her around but I think she can pedal some if I provide enough speed to keep us balanced and keep up the rotation.
Any opinions on what type of tandems would be best suited for us? Recumbent maybe?[/QUOTE]
