Other types of Bicycles

 There are many other types of bicycles, each designed  to meet a special need. Here are a few of them.
Folding Bike
Folding Bikes
are ideal for those who need to travel with their bike, want a bike to keep on their boat or plane, or who live in small apartments and don't have a lot of storage space. They're also good for commuters who need to take their bike on a bus or train for part of their commute, or who don't have a safe place to park their bike at work.

Most folding bikes have smaller wheels, which makes the bike a little less efficient and trickier to handle than a standard bike, but folding bike enthusiasts feel the benefits outweigh the disadvantages.
Recumbent Bicycles
have a long, low design and a full-size seat with a backrest. Recumbents are available in
two-wheel and three-wheel designs. Many riders feel that they are the most comfortable option available for bicycling.

However, they're more difficult to pedal up hills, and can be a challenge transport in a motor vehicle. Their low profile can also make them difficult to see in traffic.
Tandem Bicycles
are "bicycles built for two." They come in all styles, from cruiser tandems and hybrid tandems for the bike path or boardwalk, off-road mountain bike tandems, and high-performance road racing tandems.
Adult Trike
Cargo Bike
Adult Trikes
are ideal for older folks who still want to get around under their own power, or those with balance issues or other special needs. They are also popular in environmentally-consious industrial/warehouse applications.
Utility/Cargo Bikes
are perfect for hauling groceries, camping gear, and other items—utility and cargo bikes feature a sturdy, elongated frame with heavy-duty storage racks over the rear tires. A variety of accessories can be hooked onto the rear rack, such as baskets, child seats, and panniers to hold your gear.

The upright seating position gives you a good view of the road, the rims have extra spokes for additional strength, and the wider tires offer a more stable ride.
Special Needs Bikes
are individually adaped bikes that address specific challenges for the handicapped or injured, allowing them exercise, mobility, and the sense of freedom that enhances their life.
