Project Mobility - Adaptive Cycling for People with Disabilities - featured September, 2009

< Back to Previous Page

Hal Honeyman, founder of Project Mobility: Cycles for Life, Inc. has been involved with bicycles as a sport, business, and recreation for nearly thirty years. Hal's interest in "adaptive cycling", bicycles for people with disabilities, was spurred when his own son Jacob was born with Cerebral Palsy. Hal wanted to find a way for Jacob to join the family when bicycle riding. After Jacob's needs were met, Hal found specialized bikes for other disabled children and began creating specialized bikes when other bikes were not available or did not exist for that particular disability. This has led to the recent formation of Project Mobility: Cycles for Life.

Bikes for those who are disabled goes beyond mere transportation, or even health building recreation for those whose health is often fragile. These specialized bikes create a sense of freedom for those who are disabled. Bikes restore a sense of possibility and ability to those whom are often told by society that their life is about limitations and disability.
