    Default DDOT considers adding Adaptive Bikeshare

    https://ddot.dc.gov/page/adaptive-bikeshare-program although it seems the deadline was March 1 for the survey to identify times and locations, the program was reported to DC Council Committee on Transportation and the Environment on 2/25 by DDOT Director Jeff Marootian.

    "This program would likely function as a bike/trike “library,” where the user would pick-up and return their adaptive bike/trike at a specific location, such as a recreation center. Staff would be available to assist the user in adjusting the bike/trike and to provide basic instruction on its use.

    Possible types of bicycles include:

    Recumbent tricycles
    Hand tricycles
    Two person side-by-side tricycles or tandems for companion riders
    Side-by-side tricycles and wheelchair bicycle tandems for companion riders
    Cargo tricycles with a separate basket for bags and equipment"

    I could really use a hand tricycle until my Achilles is weight bearing

    Yes, I would have been interested in trying a hand cycle after breaking my leg, a bike lending library seems a good idea. If this program is a success perhaps in future they might also consider adding cargo bikes for carrying children?
