All Ability Cycling Event, Belfast

We will be attending Belcycle the all ability cycling festival in Belfast on Staurday 16 June at CS Lewis Square.

There will be bikes to suit all users including tandem bikes, handcycles and adapted bikes for those with special needs including our fantastic range of Tomcat Trikes and Quickie handcycles.

Tomcat trikes are custom made to suit to suit each individuals needs. The trikes are available for children from the age of 2 years old & upwards to adult sizes.

You choose everything, the handle bars, the saddle, the amount of support, whether we would like carer control (so the carer can control the trike & brake the trike), the colour. Also the Tomcat trikes split in half to make transporting them very easy and can even be converted into a trailer trike.

Belcycle is a free event for all the family – come along and test drive the Tomcat special needs trikes and Quickie handcycles.

Tomcat special needs trikes, Belfast

Tomcat tiger trike

special-needs-trike-belfast

The Tomcat Tiger Trike is designed specifically to match the narrow pelvis of small children and each trike custom-built to meet individual needs.

It can be built to be quite simple, or to be supportive depending on the rider. Additionally, the rider can be independent or they can be supervised.

It features a maintenance-free and friction-free drive system so any child can pedal it – even those children with very low muscle tone!

Small children have a narrow pelvis, but a standard pedal span rarely reflects that fact! Tomcat wanted Tiger riders’ posture to be totally natural, so we manufactured our own special crank and pedal system.

We saved a full 4.5cm on the pedal span by tucking the drive away inside the Tigers cool looking frame, because when pedals match pelvis, the legs are naturally comfortable and the Tiger becomes the ideal therapy tool for growing bodies.

Features.

  • Suitable for user heights of 70 to 95cm in two sizes  Ideal for Restricted Growth conditions
  • Can be fully accessorised with foot, leg, trunk, arm and head support orthosis
  • Fully independent, or optional Carer Control™ or Carer Braking™
  • Frictionless belt drive with disc brakes and parkbrake
  • Maintenance Free “All Internal” steering, braking and drive mechanisms
  • Tomcat’s unique “Narrow Pedal” spacing

Tomcat Tamara Trike

all-ability-cycling-belfast

Tomcat Tamara Trike is intended for hoist users, or those with balance, coordination and overweight problems.

It is the only special needs trike in the world designed for hoist users and the design allows for simple, quick and easy transfer.

It is easily transported and assembled thanks to the two piece frame system and can be reconfigured from tricycle to trailer in just a few seconds – hitch it to an adult bike and the whole family can enjoy a cycle together!

How it Works

A swivel saddle allows the hoist to approach from either side.  When the rider is seated, the saddle swivels to the front and the backrest returns to its preset ride position.  The whole operation takes just seconds, which significantly reduces time, stress and effort for rider and carers alike.

Other Benefits.

The Tamara design is light but very rigid, making if suitable for obese riders who find they sway uncomfortably on other tricycles.  The backrest is removable which coupled with our signature “Quick-Release” frame system, makes the Tamara one of our most transportable trikes.

Features include:

  • Virtually no manual handling required
  • From hoist to riding in seconds
  • Exceptionally stable with no sway on seat or backrest
  • Wide swivel Seat and tilting backrest as standard
  • Fully adjustable with ‘memory’ return feature
