dicycles

I recently had a chance to fool around with a wheel chair. In the wheelie
position I guess it would be wheel walking with your hands on a dicycle.

I found it to be quite easy, as I’m sure anyone who could ride at all would. I
tried to balance sideways on one wheel and idle like that but I couldn’t do
it. I’m sure some of you could. You could probably even dicycle a wheelchair
down stairs!

Re: dicycles

I got a chance to try a dicycle last sunday. It was rather diffucult to turn on
it because you had to pop up on one wheel to turn. the seat was also too low for
me but it was a bunch of fun anyways

Re: dicycles

Hi,

At an outdoor film event, I once saw a film about an incredible wheelchair
athlete (he was paralyzed from the waist down). The video was mostly about him
extreme skiing, but he was doing some amazing dicycling, down stairs, over rough
terrain and some flatland tricks.

-Kris.

Re: dicycles

The other night on TV, I think Dateline, they showed this amazing new computer
controlled electric wheelchair. It has 4 wheels (at least) and can go over
curbs, through rough terrain and even up and down stairs but the most amazing of
all is when it rears up on two wheels like some strange robot bug!
