Thae Adaptive Cycling Foundation has joined with QL+ to challenge collage Engineering students to design and make Adaptive Cycling Products for Wounded, Ill and Injured Service Members. See below to learn about the projects, and click the donate button to support these and other Adaptive Cycling projects for our Heroes.
The Adaptive Cycling Foundation and it's founder Scott Moro have been supplying bikes & parts as well as mentoring and working with talented engineering students at University of Dayton, along with QL+, on a voice-activated gear shifting system on a hand-cycle, specifically for retired veteran Sgt. Timothy Brown, and we are so proud to announce...IT WORKS!
This video of the first prototype from Dec 2018 has been on OPSEC hold until now and we are so excited to share the news.
Quite a lot has evolved with the system since then and in the coming semesters it will be refined, professionally packaged, and added to Tim’s bike. So stay tuned as soon you will witness some amazing inventions from the students, ACF and QL+ that can be used again and again for Injured Service Members.
To give support to this project, plus continuing and future projects please click this link https://adaptivecycling.kindful.com/?campaign=339414 Thank You!
Special thanks to Ryan Kronk, James Connair, Howard Evans, Matthew Huntington, Brian Ulinski, Haotian Liang and Amber Humphrey.
Engineering Students at UD have been challenged with designing, manufacturing and delivering Voice Activated Electronic Shifting on a handcycle for injured Hero Sgt. Tim Brown USMC (medically retired). The students have moved past the research phase and secured all the necessary equipment with the help of ACF, and are now designing and manufacturing the system. This will be a one of a kind shifting system bound to make cycling so much easier for a Hero that deserves nothing less.
Engineering students Ryan Kronk, Joe Esch, James Connair and Hoatian Liang are tackling this project with leadership and support from QL+'s Midwest Region Program Manager Amber Humphrey, QL+'s Founder Jon Monett, and Adaptive Cycling Foundation founder Scott Moro.

Learning how all this is going to work.
Engineering Students at UC have been challenged with designing, manufacturing and delivering a better version of Scotty's Hydraulic Butt Brake system for injured service member Ashley Boyce U.S. Army (medically retired) and future Adaptive Cycling projects. Cant wait to see what these amazing students come up with for Ashley to make her cycling easier.

Students meet to discuss the project.
In August of 2018, The Adaptive Cycling Foundation hosted Veterans from Denmark, Germany, Holland, Australia and the United States as well as an international team of support volunteers to cycle 600 km through the Danish and German countryside. Most of the vets were wounded in Afghanistan, Iraq or Bosnia. Several suffered from Post Traumatic Stress. All bonded as brothers and sisters through the daily challenge and ultimate victory of cycling. Watch the video and enjoy.
ESAB, the worlds largest producer of standard welding equipment, consumables and automation equipment, as well as cutting machines and systems is supporting the Adaptive Cycling Foundation with a Rebel EMP 215ic multi process welder, and we cannot thank them enough! This will allow us to weld a much bigger variety of materials with one machine, but no ordinary machine! This thing a beast. It is a true multi purpose welder that can do MIG, Flux-Cored, Stick and TIG. We cannot be more excited to be working with ESAB to offer more devirsity in how we can create adapted bikes for injured service members, first responders and the general special needs public. :)
Supporting the Adaptive Cycling foundation, a 501c3 non profit organization, makes it possible for one of a kind bikes to be made for one of a kind heroes who without a specially adapted bike could not enjoy the freedom of cycling
