What is FREEDOM WHEELS?
For most children, their first bike ride is a rite of passage. But for children with a disability, this can seem unachievable.
The FREEDOM WHEELS customised bike program gives many children with disabilities the opportunity to ride a bike for the first time.
How does it work?
TADNSW’s healthcare and engineering staff assess each child at a bike “clinic” and write a specification for a bike that will meet their exact needs. This may include stabiliser wheels, postural supports, belts, footcups, towbars and modified handlebars.
FREEDOM WHEELS is available to any child with a disability. Clients do not need to undergo a means test.
How much does it cost?
After the bike assessment, TADNSW provide a quote. Costs vary dependent on the parts required for the individual. TADNSW only charge for the cost of materials and the cost can be much cheaper than other commericial bikes.
How do I get a bike?
FREEDOM WHEELS is available throughout NSW and also through TAD’s sister organisations in each state.
If you're interested in one of these bikes, you can register for a bike assessment clinic. Check our schedule for upcoming clinic dates and book early to avoid disappointment.
