HUGBIKE® is a bicycle born from a different way of experiencing the tandem.
In traditional tandems, the driver sits in front and steers the vehicle with his handlebars, while the passenger sits behind. On HUGBIKE, the driver of the vehicle – with a long curved handlebar similar to that of a chopper – sits on the rear saddle, while the passenger sits on the front saddle.
This particular position guarantees greater SAFETY, especially if the passenger is a child or an elderly person, because it is as if he were protected by the driver’s arms.
HUGBIKE also offers a particular intimacy in having a chat in total RELAX with those you hold dear.
That’s why HUGBIKE is the tandem for RIDE HUGGED!
HUGBIKE® was born from a project developed by Opera della Marca, in collaboration with the Fondazione Oltre il Labirinto ONLUS, a Treviso-based reality born to support young people with autism also through social inclusion projects.
