What To Consider When Buying A Recreational Bicycle For Your Handicapped Child

When hunting for a recreational family bike that will meet the needs of a handicapped child, it’s important to consider how safe, high quality, and customizable it is. 

To understand why these are the main pillars of consideration, we broke it down with this put together this brief guide:

Safety 

Parents don’t need to be reminded that ensuring a safe ride is the most important aspect of choosing a bike. With this in mind, we recommend pouring over every safety feature of prospective purchases. How reliable are the brakes? Are there harness systems, roll cage bars, or seat belts? Answering questions like these offers a pragmatic path to finding a suitable family recreational bike. 

Quality of Components

Looking at elements like the shelf-life of an electric battery, and making sure it’s suited for a full day of adventure will help narrow the search for an ideal recreational bike. Some components, such as the brakes, are crucial to ensuring a safe ride. While other components, like the paint and finishings dictate the mood and aesthetic of a bike. Seeking a balance of pieces dedicated to both top-notch performance and elegant, accessible builds is a sound approach finding a bike. 

Accessories

Premium add-ons offer families a number of avenues to customize their cargo bike to suit every need. For example, Memory Foam Cushions can make riding more comfortable for everyone. Water-and-Dust Proof Floor Mats help keep everything clean without worrying about spills. For sunny days, the elegant Bimini Top provides shade to riders.

In addition to these main pillars of consideration for buying a family recreational bike, discerning parents should also take a closer look at their options’ specific features. 

Handlebars - The guiding force of every great bike, quality handlebars are of major importance. That’s why Ferla’s features ergonomic handlebars for comfort and ease.  This well-performing component leaves room to pay attention to riding and parenting. 

Rear Steering - Regardless of physical capabilities, every single child deserves to enjoy the fun and excitement of a bike ride. Ferla’s rear-steering family cargo bikes creates an environment where a parent can pedal and steer, while any child enjoys the breeze and motion from the front bucket. 

Fixed Gear - Bikes with a fixed gear don’t coast, which means Ferla Bikes require active pedaling. This feature provides parents with total control of the motion of the bike, which can be super helpful when traveling with a child of different abilities, who is disabled, or who has special needs. 

Puncture-Proof Tires - Flat tires are challenging and stressful for cyclists and passengers. We understand that our families have enough going on, and we’d hate to add any stress. Puncture-proof tires help families with loved ones who are differently abled and physically disabled can be real life savers. 

Seat Belts For Head & Back Support - Different children with disabilities and special needs have different needs. The three-point harness seat belts included with a Ferla Family Cargo Bike can help keep passengers upright, secure, and comfortable.
