Think about two bicycles… one is a tandem for two and the other is handcycle. These two have been created by opposite designs. Do you think that they can be combined? Yes! Think about these two different design styles are uniting in one case. Strength of the hands are supporting the power of the legs and two people are coming together for one purpose.

Uniting of the powers! The sole motivation point of these two people is determination! PEP is the name of the bicycle that can be used by visually impaired or physically disabled people. That is why it is called being each others eye, hand or foot.
It is possible that two paralympic bicycle participants, from different categories, can participate in one field with the help of PEP. PEP bike brings a new wave to the games by the light and innovative design, and proves that disabilities are not barriers for the love of bicycle
