Freedom Wheels, as the name implies, gives you ‘wings’ to explore the world! Giving you the ability to escape the confines of your wheelchairs or other mobility equipment, it creates a whole new possibility of being able to commute, play, ride, explore, race and travel to where your heart desires.
Freedom Wheels are custom built bikes that are especially designed, built and modified to suit your age, height, weight, type of disability and physical and cognitive abilities. Our team of highly skilled technical volunteers are well experienced in customising a new bike for you using a range of specially designed support components suited for children, youth, the middle aged or the elderly. These components, including a wide range of outrigger wheels, hand, foot and upper body supports and even carer assisted steering and braking supports are made to be detachable for easy transport and storage.
The customisation process begins with an assessment of each individual at the comfort of your home, our compound or at a special assessment clinic by our very friendly experts, to identify the bike, components and modifications suited just for you.
Once your individual needs, likes and dislikes are assessed, the team of Freedom Wheels technical volunteers build the bike, and make it readily available for you to take home.
The Freedom Wheels program has been incredibly rewarding for children and their parents. The one thing most noticeable is the smile and laughter of children when they get on their bicycles for the first time.
