The challenge

Safe bike trailer seatGeorge is a boy with Downs syndrome, learning disabilities, low muscle tone and balance problems, but he loves bicycles. His parents had bought a cycle trailer but it had to hold him safely.

A support frame was made from old zimmer frame tubing inside foam rubber padding and wrapped in tape and bolted to a normal cycle saddle. This in turn was bolted to the trailer frame. He could then be held in place with a lapstrap.

As a result George can go cycling safely with his parents – an activity he loves.
