Sequim Wheelers

Free Wheelchair-Bike Rides, offering fresh air and sunshine on a bike. The Sequim Wheelers are looking forward to serving the disabled, young and elderly, with an enjoyable bike ride on the Olympic Discovery Trail!

Free Community Service

Sequim Wheelers, a nonprofit 501(c)(3), is the fifth program of this kind in the US. We will offer FREE wheelchair bike rides on a Duet Wheelchair Bicycle to our elderly and disabled community members, including children. Trained volunteers will provide 45 minute to one hour long rides on the Olympic Discovery Trail (ODT) in Sequim. 

Our goal is to build an inclusive community where everyone can enjoy our amazing ODT without the limitations of physical capabilities.

We have purchased our first Duet Wheelchair Bicycle, and the Audubon Center at Railroad Bridge, a location convenient to the ODT, has graciously agreed to store it.

Explore our website whether you would like a ride on the Duet Bike, sign-up to be a volunteer pilot, or make a donation to this wonderful free service to our community. Thank you so much!

About the Bike Chairs

The Duet™ is an orthopedically shaped fiberglass wheelchair attached to the back half of a bicycle with a battery assist pac to aid on hills and provide a smoother ride.

The chair has good suspension and light handling, and its off-road tires are excellent on gravel and dirt tracks. There are twin drum brakes on the chair's wheel, and a back-pedal brake on the cycle wheel.

The bikes can accommodate both a rider up to 275 pounds and a passenger up to 275 pounds. The battery assist enables trained volunteers of all ages and athletic abilities to volunteer to pedal.
