Meet Cyrus

Cyrus is a gentle and caring 12-year-old who loves music. He is on the Autism Spectrum, which affects his balance and makes it hard for him to ride a bike.

He tried a standard bike with training wheels but they buckled because they’re made for younger kids.

When a Freedom Wheels clinic was held at Cyrus’ school he got to ride a bike for the very first time.

Freedom Wheels built Cyrus a bike fitted with a larger seat, special outrigger wheels and foot cups to support his riding position, balance and coordination. When it was delivered, Cyrus could ride up and down the street with his three brothers.

Now he rides his bike at school with his friends and at home with his family.

It’s really helped to build his confidence, he’s so proud when he’s on his bike. It’s something special that’s just his,” says Anna, Cyrus’ mum.
