All three boys live with autism and have low muscle tone and and other medical issues, which makes it impossible for them to balance and ride traditional bikes.

The adaptive bikes are custom designed especially for each boy, helping them to get outdoors and enjoy exercising and having fun with their family and friends this summer.

Preston's March is a non-profit organization based in Delaware that provides adaptive bikes to children with disabilities across the United States.

So far it has given away 600 bikes in 35 states.
