Chuckwagon, 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. The front rider or “Captain” controls the steering and shifting, while the rear rider or “Stoker” simply pedals and enjoys the freedom of cycling with a big smile.

The bike has independent pedaling, meaning that Chuck can stop pedaling at any time and the captain can keep pedaling the bike without change, this works the same if the captain stops and Chuck keeps pedaling also.
