Arm and leg power combined
The BerkelBike is an innovative tricycle with propulsion from both arms and legs. The hand crank and pedals are connected to each other in a way that makes it possible to move the bike by pedalling with your legs only. That means you can hold on to the crank like a typical handlebar while your legs do the work. However, as soon as you rotate the crank with your arms, the pedals will move along simultaneously. This enables you to support the movement of your legs with the strength of your arms and shoulders.
Cycling is a great way to exercise. It is fun, increases your personal mobility and can also be a great workout for conditioning. With the BerkelBike, even physically impaired individuals are able to enjoy the many benefits that cycling has to offer.
