Ambucks & Amtryke Tricycles

We have a special place in our hearts for the youth of our community and yours. Through the Amtrykes program, The Norwood Firefighters Association Charity has given 3 children mobility and independence by providing them with Amtryke Tricycles. The Amtryke organization specializes in making custom bicycles for children with many kinds of disabilities such as Spinal Muscle Atrophy, Autism, Spina Bifida, Cerebral Palsy, and Down Syndrome. These bicycles range in price from $250 to $1200 a piece, and we are proud to provide them to children and families who would otherwise be incapable of obtaining this life-changing tool. The Amtrykes charity effort is ongoing, and annual donations are made to help children and families in need.

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.
