After wife’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis, her husband Bill crafts a bike that allows both of them to ride together. It used to be one of their favorite activities to do together and so Bill built a special bike that allows her to sit in front while he pedals.
The sweet couple have been married for 50 years. Bill had a friend weld the wheelchair onto the front wheel of his cruiser bike and it works great!
“When we first started dating, I used to ride my bike from where I lived to where she was, and that was about 5 kilometers, on a Saturday afternoon, ‘cause that was the only chance we had to get together,” Bill recalled in a video by CVCNow.
“I used to ride everywhere on my bike, and Glad had a bike as well, and we put a baby chair on the front of her bike and so we carried our babies around on the bike… Bikes have been part of our lives,” he said.Tanks Good News
Bill named his creation the “Bike Chair” and it’s gained major popularity. He has seen over 27,000 people join the Bike Chair group on Facebook. He is trying to make it available for more people by bringing it to the American market.
