We are a Northern California non-profit organization dedicated to providing custom tricycles to children with disabilities.
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 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.
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.
Giving the gift of mobility.
