We are a Northern California non-profit organization dedicated to providing custom tricycles to children with special needs.
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.
Proven to build motor skills, strength and self esteem.
It is fun to ride and offers the child the chance for age appropriate inclusive play.
"I haven't ridden a bike in 5 years. I'm so looking forward to feeling more free!"
"I'm going to ride my bike to Roundtable Pizza!"
Joshua's mom is thrilled "that he now has the ability to participate in more physical family activities and that he has something that all the other kids have."
Aiden's mom is "excited that he'll finally be able to go outside and play."
"I'm looking forward to bike rides with my family."
"Now I can finally go with my family to walk the dog!"
The average cost of one Tryke is $1,000. Please donate today to help us bring the gift of mobility to a child in need. Please make your checks out to NorCal Trykers and mail to 417 Mace Blvd., Ste., J-177, Davis, CA 95618 or click the PayPal button below.

If you have a Physical or Occupational Therapist working with your child, they may like to help you select the Amtryke tricycle and they are encouraged to complete and return the Amtryke Assessment Form and the Tryke Selection Form below.
If you don't have a Physical or Occupational Therapist working with your child, just fill out the Request/Waiver form below and one of our therapists will contact you and arrange to meet you to help select the appropriate Amtryke for your child.
ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA: Recipients must be under 22 years of age, and be unable to ride a conventional bicycle; they must also have a safe place to store the tryke where it is protected from the weather and from the risk of theft.
NorCal Trykers officially opened its doors on January 11, 2017. Since then, we have been fortunate to have received donations to fund over 100 trykes for kids with special needs.
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, accounting and administrative expertise.
NorCal Trykers relies on the generous donations of time and expertise of volunteers from around the area. Please contact Gill Williams at (530) 400-4792 if you are able to donate a few hours to help us build trykes for our quarterly giveaway events.
