    PLEASE donate to Edwade's Buddy Bike fundraiser in The Great Bike Giveaway! Edwade has special needs which prevent him from being able to ride his own bike with his siblings.

    DONATE at https://www.greatbikegiveaway.com/Member/MyPage/1794145/etta-gant

    Edwade has joined The Great Bike Giveaway by Friendship Circle and has until NOON today to hit the fundraising goal! A generous donor has applied fund matching so he only needs $595. Your donation will be doubled! If they can get closer to the goal, I will make sure they get the Buddy Bike that they need so Edwade can ride bicycles safely with his family - no more being left behind!

    I am calling on this group and the cycling community to give a hand because you know how special your bicycles are and the sense of freedom that it offers you. That is even more important to a child with special needs!

    The Great Bike Giveaway by The Friendship Circle is an annual event that provides families an opportunity to obtain a Buddy Bike or other adaptive bicycle for their loved one with special needs. www.greatbikegiveaway.org

    The Buddy Bike® is the alternative inline tandem bicycle (bicycle for two) that places the stoker (smaller rider) in the front seat while the rear rider controls the steering. The features of the Buddy Bike offer adaptive outdoor recreation and therapeutic activity to riders with cognitive or physical disabilities who may not be able to ride a bicycle safely on their own or who do not have the strength to pedal a bike alone. The Buddy Bike allows riders with autism, down syndrome, sight impairment or other disabilities to experience the thrill of riding a bicycle with the whole family. They are no longer left behind! www.buddybike.com

    Do y'all have an option for footpegs that attach to the downtube for the stroker to use as footrest if not actively pedaling? Just something that crossed my mind looking at pic with the one kid holding their feet up off the pedals...........I wouldn't ask if I wasn't donating :)

    Yep. We have optional fold-out foot pegs but they didn't order them. https://squareup.com/store/BuddyBike/item/buddy-bike-fold-out-foot-pegs-fp-a We also have another size since many people buy them for other tandem bicycles as well. So far I see the fundraising page is still open. They have more time. If they can get closer to the goal, I will make sure they get a Buddy Bike! I have already shipped the other 3 Buddy Bikes to the kids who met their fundraising goals. I know they are super excited. Thank you!!
