See The Bikes That Change Everything

At Ride 2 Recovery, we adapt and modify bicycles on a daily basis and we have the ability to create one-of-a-kind specialty bikes from the ground up. With a nationwide team of mechanics and engineers led by Scott Moro, we can create very unique bikes with custom frame designs and any adaptions needed to help with the mental and physical health of our Healing Heroes. The following are examples of the amazing work that has helped our Healing Heroes reach their goal of being free to ride.

Hand Cycles

Hand cycles are great for those who simply cannot use their legs, or those who are not yet accustomed to using prosthetics. They are also helpful to those with injuries that initially prevent them from riding an upright bike until they can gain enough strength and stamina through rehabilitation and recovery to ride an upright.

More Info

Recumbents

Recumbents are the bike of choice for those with full use of their body but may have a severe balance issue, have severe back or arm/shoulder issues preventing them from using their core to hold up their upper body on an upright, or for those with below and above the knee amputations who need to build leg strength before switching to an upright bike.

Kenny Butler

AE amputee

Kenny’s bike is a Raleigh Sortie Black Dual Suspension. Working with Kenny’s prosthesis, he has a very special prosthetic arm that utilizes a Fox Rear Suspension unit to help take up the bumps and vibrations of the road and trail. Using a R2R custom adapted Shimano DI2 Electronic shifting and hydraulic braking set up, Kenny is able to shift and brake both derailleurs and shifters using one hand with precise control.

Blind & double AK amputee

The “Chuckwagon” is an example of what R2R can do when presented with injuries that most if not all would say riding is not a possibility. Chuck is a blind double above the knee amputee. The bike we designed and made for him is a tandem Recumbent/Hand cycle.
