Van Raam Chat Rickshaw bike

From £POA

The rickshaw bike is intended to be used by adults and children who may have mobility issues but still want to experience the joys of cycling. The Rickshaw operates with an able cyclist with one or two persons. The passengers are seated next to each other in a specially designed cockpit. The driver sits behind this cockpit and thus has an overview of the road, but also of the occupants. The Chat rickshaw bike comes standard with our electric pedal support, which can be used to cycle backwards, among other things.

Optionally, the Chat can be extended with a canopy, so that the passengers are protected from sun and rain. This canopy is not part of the standard version and has to be ordered separately. The ‘Chat’ gives people the opportunity to socialise and chat with each other. In addition, the riders can enjoy a comfortable bike ride through a combination of great suspension and correct ergonomics.

Elderly people can, for example, explore the city together with young people and take on the role of ‘guide’ and tell stories from the past, thus bringing them out of their isolation for a short while.

The rickshaw bicycle offers a solution for the elderly, as well as people who want to go on a guided tour, people in care institutions, families and holiday parks. For further information visit Van Raam.
