The fun and freedom of riding a bike is something everyone should be able to enjoy. Now, thanks to the AmTryke® therapeutic tricycle, even individuals who are unable to operate a traditional bike can finally realize this wonderful experience.

The Center on Disability and Community Inclusion and the Vermont Friends of Ambucs are sponsoring the next Amtryke fitting event on Saturday, June 11, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m, at Delehanty Hall, located at 208 Colchester Ave., behind the CDCI offices at Mann Hall.

If your child has been unsuccessful in riding a traditional bike, and you would like an opportunity for your child try an AMTRYKE, then come to this event! There will be bikes for children of all ages to try out. If your therapist is available please have them come.

You must register for an assigned time to try out the bikes and be fitted. Slots are limited so register early.

If your child has received an Amtryke in the past and now needs a bigger size, please let us know that when you schedule and bring the old bike with you when you come.  We will “ Pay it Forward”  and maybe someone that comes will take it home! Who knows, someone just might have the bigger bike your child needs.

To register call Leslie Ermolovich at CDCI: 802-656-4767 or email cdciat@uvm.edu
