Eamon Guilfoile recently got his hands on a tandem bicycle sent from Canada and customised by Dream Fit WA to suit his needs.
The 19-year-old has cerebral palsy.
His mum Julie said the bike, which cost about $22,000 to buy and modify, had helped Mr Guilfoile take part in his favourite activities around the community.
�Being able to get on to his bike gives Eamon a different view of the world,� she said.
�The fun of being outdoors with the wind and rain and sun � these are thing he loves to experience. He rides his bike every day around the neighbourhood, whatever the weather.�
Mr Guilfoile plans to use the bike to take part in the Bibra Lake Fun Run and other running events. But carer Benjamin Slater said that was just the beginning.
�He has big plans for future destinations, especially in the South-West of WA once he gets a trailer for his bike,� he said.
