Helping Kids With Special Needs Experience Personal Freedom and Mobility!

We are a Northern California non-profit organization dedicated to providing custom tricycles to children with special needs.

Helping Kids Be Kids

image2

Each Amtryke is custom-made and custom-fit for the child's special need.

The ability to ride a bike is often not a reality for children with physical or developmental challenges. Properly balanced and safely supported, almost any child can ride an Amtryke.  They are designed to address the special and varied needs of any individual with disabilities. 

Helps build important physical and life skills

Proven to build motor skills, strength and self esteem.

Fun for kids

It is fun to ride and offers the child the chance for age appropriate inclusive play.
