Marsha is a determined young woman from Sacramento, CA. Born with spina bifida and a visual impairment, Marsha has limited access to exercise and physical activities. She used to have a blast riding a hand bike at her school. Unfortunately, Marsha graduated last June and no longer has access to the school bike.
To get her back to riding, Marsha's therapist jumped into action, completed an evaluation and recommended Marsha for the Amtryke National Wish List. Today, she proudly rides her very own set of wheels. Help other riders, like Marsha, who deserve to know the freedom of owning their own bikes.
See all the latest and greatest from Amtryke in the new 2016 Amtryke Catalogue! You'll appreciate the new streamlined line-up that makes it possible to quickly switch seats and seat backs between most trykes. Check out the two therapist-applauded early intervention trykes along with several new seat and accessory options.

Wait, I’m confused, are you AMBUCS or Amtryke? And those are very strange names, BTW. Yeah, we hear that a lot. When you’ve been around since 1922, you’re bound to pick up lots of ‘character’ along the way.
AMBUCS began life as American Business Clubs, a membership organization dedicated to helping people with disabilities. As our model changed to a more standard 501c3 charitable organization, that name no longer described us. So, in 1961, we shortened it to AMBUCS (pronounced AM-BUCKS). It’s weird but so are we, so it fits.
In the mid-1990s we started making and giving away therapeutic tricycles as a national project. Just to keep everyone confused we called both the trykes and the company that makes them, Amtryke. Amtryke, LLC is fully owned by National AMBUCS, Inc.
AMBUCS now has more than 5,000 members in more than 140 chapters in over 30 states. Our members work on a grassroots level to fulfill our mission Creating Mobility & Independence for People with Disabilities. The Amtryke Therapeutic Tricycle Program is one of the main ways we do that. Our members fundraise for and give away about 3,000 Amtrykes each year.
While visiting, we can present an In-Service training session for your professional staff and, if you would like, a Bike Evaluation Day where we help you fit your clients to the best riding solution for them. We would love to show you how to bring an effective bike program to your fair city! There is no cost for a Road Show visit but our calendar fills up fast. Learn More >
