Bike Rides

Bennett loved being at the front of his Duet Bike with mom or dad at the helm, and we are thrilled to share this simple joy with other families.

 

Always B Smiling has teamed up with the Tandem Connection on the Montour Trail in Canonsburg, PA  to offer FREE adaptive bike rides for children and young adults with disabilities and their families. It’s a great way for people with disabilities that include limited mobility to enjoy recreation and fun outdoors!

 2pm and 4pm on Saturdays

11am and 2pm on Sundays (IN OCTOBER ONLY - BOO's & BIKES !)

WHERE

Tandem Connection - Canonsburg, PA

Powered by trained volunteers, the Duet Bike provides a comfortable wheelchair seat at the front of the electronic-assisted bicycle.  This provides riders the pleasure of riding a bike with the breeze in your hair and the sun on your face.  On every outing, there will be two trained volunteers joining you and your family and friends on your outing – one to power the bike and the other to ride along as a backup. * Note that at least one parent or adult must be present with the rider.

Rides will be no more than 10 miles round-trip, but length can be decided on the day of. At the end of the ride, all participants will be treated to an ice cream on the patio of the Tandem Connection.

All riders are asked to sign a liability waiver prior to their ride.  Our volunteers will have them on hand.

**All current COVID precautions will be in place.

**There are not currently restrooms with handicapped access available at our location.

“Next to a leisurely walk I enjoy a spin on my tandem bicycle.  It is splendid to feel the wind blowing in my face and the springy motion of my iron steed.  The rapid rush through the air gives me a delicious sense of strength and buoyancy, and the exercise makes my pulse dance and my heart sing.”

Helen Keller (both blind and deaf)
