Helping Kids With Disabilities Experience Personal Freedom and Mobility!

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

Helping Kids Be Kids

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.

About Us

Our team

NorCal Trykers officially opened its doors on January 11, 2017.  Since then, we have been fortunate to have received  donations to fund over 40 trykes for kids with disabilities.  


Our team is made up of physical and occupational therapy professionals with years of experience working with children with disabilities.  The team is rounded out with individuals with sales, marketing and administrative expertise.

  • Gill Williams, the founder of NorCal Trykers, is a Physical Therapist working at Shriners Hospital in Sacramento.  She began her career in London, England and came to the USA in 2002.  She has a life-long love and belief in the benefits of exercise and wanted to take this into NorCal Trykers to enable children with disabilities to ride trikes and exercise with ease.
  • Bob Mooney has been enjoying his career as a Pediatric Physical Therapist since 2000.  
  • Patti Barnes has worked with children as a preschool teacher, and is currently a med staff team member for Shriners Hospital for Children.
  • Cheri Herman was an advertising and marketing executive in the entertainment, hospitality and food industries.

Tryke Assembly Team

Corazon Experience

We are proud to work with the Yolo County Office of Education, College and Career Readiness Department, which has partnered with Manolo Jauregui and Pascual Marquez of Marquez Design, both credentialed teachers in areas of manufacturing, product design and transportation, to form the Corazon Experience. 


The Corazon Experience works with high school age students from various demographics.  All of the students in the program are enrolled in a CTE course and those that participate in the bike build outside of their regular school day will be able to earn community service hours.  The students will learn skill sets in areas of tool identification and proper use, measuring, and manufacturing.  Students will also learn the importance of providing service to others.

We want to hear from you.
