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.

Olivia and her parents are all smiles because of the opportunity she has to ride an Amtryke. She has a rare chromosome disorder, is unable to speak, walk or crawl. She also has a heart condition. Despite these limitations, Olivia is pure joy and brings happiness to everyone she encounters.
Therapist Barb loves seeing Olivia be so successful on her early intervention tryke. "Thanks to your organization for making this 1410 available. It is much better than adapting a small, all-plastic tryke. You all are the best!"
The Longview Chapter of AMBUCS loves taking advantage of a trip. Whenever one of their members is heading to a different part of Texas, they take a tryke to a child who is waiting on the National Wish List.
Longview upped the ante when one of their members decided to take a trip to Kentucky. Don and his wife, Karen, graciously took a tryke along for the 600-mile drive. The lucky recipient was Blake from Providence, KY. After 20 years, Blake was finally able to take his first ride!
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 >
