-------- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create a custom adapted bike for a child with Down syndrome and mild visual impairment. FREEDOM WHEELS® created a bike with a wider seat, outrigger wheels, toe clips, and a tow bar. Aside from learning how to climb onto the bike with assistance from his father, the child has already begun to enjoy being on the bike and has started to pedal on his own; although his father still pulls him over rougher terrain on occasion.
