Giving Rides

Helping everyone enjoy Columbia’s beloved trails, regardless of age or ability

Giving Rides helps people who may not have the opportunity to spend much time outside.

For our Giving Rides program we use our specially adapted Duet tandem wheelchair bike to give older adults and people with disabilities recreational bike rides on the trail. The Duet is a standard bicycle on the back half and a wheelchair front half. With the help of a volunteer piloting the bike we are able to give rides to people who aren’t able to ride by themselves. This bicycle comes complete with seat straps for wheelchair and electric assistance, which helps the pilot to pedal along even up hills. Over the past 4 years we’ve worked with about 150 people.

Local Motion was able to purchase the Duet bike thanks to sponsorships from Veterans United Foundation and The Bank of Missouri, as well as the generosity of our 2016 CoMoGives donors.
