A new tandem bicycle known as the Hugbike has been designed to promote the social inclusion of disabled people. With this non-traditional version of the tandem, the “driver” now sits at the back and embraces the passenger in front.
Originally conceptualised for those with Autism or Down’s Syndrome, the Hugbike’s usage encompasses couples, families with small kids and the elderly.
“HUGBIKE is partly assembled by a group of workers with disabilities. In this way we promote the social inclusion of people with less opportunities in a safe and supervised working environment.”
