A Recumbent Tricycle Allows Those Who Have Trouble Balancing to Cycle

Our inspiration came from a classmate who has spina bifida-a split spine-and can't ride a regular bike. Our trike has extra back support and a steering system to make turning easier. On a normal bike, leaning in the direction you want to go helps you turn. It's hard to do that on a trike because it's rigid, but ours has hydraulic pistons that tilt the tires when you lean, allowing you to make tighter corners. You can go just as fast as you could on a regular bike, and we're going to add an electric motor, so it is going to be really fun to ride. We're building a prototype in our shop at school.
