OUR STORY 

Our son Geordi was born with a developmental disability - at the age of 10, he still couldn't ride a two-wheeler despite many hours of practice & therapy.

He needed additional help to ride independently but he didn't need the intensive support of an adaptive trike. He fell into this "gap" that no product on the market seemed to fill. That's when my husband and I discovered FATWHEELS.

 We simply bolted them on his bike and in minutes he was riding around the neighborhood with the other kids!


Twenty years later in 2013, our family purchased the FATWHEELS brand. It has allowed us the wonderful opportunity of connecting with others & sharing the gift of adaptive cycling. We've met families, professionals and individuals of ALL ages who have discovered the amazing gifts of freedom, independence, health & FUN that a set of FATWHEELS can offer. 

So, that's our story.  We can't wait to hear yours!

Each May, patients are fitted for adaptive bikes that they will receive in July for free!.
