About AMBUCS: Let's Get Kids on Bikes

photo of AMBUCS volunteers The Center on Disability and Community Inclusion at UVM is partnering with Vermont AMBUCS again this year, with the mission of getting children with special needs out riding bikes with their families and friends. Since this partnership program with CDCI was started, over 200 bikes have been fitted and delivered to Vermont kids! Some children need extra special equipment to be successful at riding a bike. Vermont AMBUCS is a local chapter of a national organization dedicated to providing mobility and independence for children with disabilities. These special bikes, called Amtrykes, are able to be adapted for each child's movement challenges, with special seating, trunk supports, back supports, footplates, and hand cranks. Each year the Vermont Friends of AMBUCS holds an Open House in May, where children are fitted for special bikes. The project then raises funds to help children purchase bikes, so they can join their friends riding. Please think about helping out with a donation.
