Adaptive (recumbent) Trike cycling provides an excellent way for stroke survivors to experience your independence.  You have probably seen them, those odd shaped bicycles that have more in common with lawn furniture than typical bicycles with a tall colorful flag sticking up on the back.

Adaptive trikes can be adjusted to suit the rider's different needs such as paralysis of hands and/or legs, clenched fists etc.  Hand controls protrude out from either side of the comfortable seat.  They are designed with two front wheels and one rear wheel.
