The Hugbike lets kids sit in front, while allowing parents to steer
The Italian-built bikes are being assembled by autistic children as part of a program that teaches them new skills
The Hugbike can also accommodate two adults, simply by raising the front seatpost
On a traditional tandem bike, the person in front steers and watches the road, while the rear rider concentrates on supplying pedaling power. That's fine if they're both adults, but what if the riders are a parent and their young child? That's where the Hugbike comes in. It lets the parent sit in the back, while reaching forward around their little 'un to steer.
