Bicycle Built For Two..And Love

Just came across this story Bicycle Design about a special ride for a special family. Rob Thompson suffered a brain injury after being involved in a car accident three years ago. The incident left Rob wheelchair bound. Fortnuately, Rob’s Dad Dave, an avid cyclist, has a background in mechanical engineering, not to mention complete awesomeness. He built this bike so they can both get out an enjoy the open road. With the return of exercise, Rob has not only reaped the general benefits of exercise, but he has also  had improvement in his motor function and cognitive function. He can now assist with pedaling and steering! For this family, the bicycle lane is the road to recovery.
