The fun and freedom of riding your own bike is something everyone should be able to enjoy. Now, thanks to the AmTryke® therapeutic tricycle, even individuals who are unable to operate a traditional bike can finally realize this wonderful experience.

Established in 1994, AmTryke®, LLC is a company owned and operated by National AMBUCS™, Inc. AMBUCS is a national non-profit service organization dedicated to creating mobility and independence for people with disabilities.

To date, over 15,300 AmTryke vehicles have been distributed around the world. The majority of these trykes are purchased by volunteer members of the AMBUCS organization and donated free of charge to financially-needy children.

These unique tricycles, which can be hand and/or foot operated, are designed to accommodate riders of all ages, sizes, and varying degrees of physical limitations.

Both physical and occupational therapists acknowledge the AmTryke tricycle's many therapeutic benefits, citing improved motor skills, strength development and self-esteem.

  • The AmTryke is a therapeutic tricycle that can be hand and/or foot operated and helps to improve a rider’s muscle strength, motor coordination and self esteem.
  • Often, individuals who are unable to ride a traditional bike can experience the joy and freedom of riding an AmTryke.
  • Every kid needs a bike. It’s a rite of passage. Our riders can be just like other kids – out in the neighborhood riding an AmTryke with their friends and family.
  • AmTryke is about abilities, not disabilities.
  • AmTryke bikes give the rider a sense of support and balanced on a trike platform.
  • The AmTryke program is about improving health and fitness. Giving riders a new form of exercise increases their fitness level which can in turn benefit their overall health.
  • With a new AmTryke, our riders are be able to gain independence and feel the joy of riding.
  • Even children with very involved disabilities can benefit from an AmTryke when used under the direction of a therapist and caring family.
  • We partner with physical and occupational therapists to evaluate riders for the AmTryke program. Therapists help us by making sure trike placements are safe and effective. They help us by fitting and choosing the size and type of the trikes as well as the adapted parts each rider needs. They also help teach parents and caregivers about using the trikes effectively.
