Literally called the “bicycle hug” because the driver is sitting back and guide the passenger hugging, Hugbike stems from a joint project developed by the new Coop. Social “Work of the Brand“. In addition, the bikes are built by the hands of young people with autism, which operates in the Province of Treviso, in Godega of St. Urban, at the Village Cohousing 4Autism.
In traditional tandem bicycles, the driver has the handlebars in front and directs the vehicle while the passenger sits behind. On Hugebike the main cyclist sits on the back seat, with a long curved handlebars similar to the chopper – while the passenger sits in the seat front.
