CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable an individual who uses a hand-propelled cycle wheelchair to transport it to cycling trails. A solution was developed that enables the individual to load the cycle, one end at a time, from his wheelchair onto a rack attached to a hitch on the back of his car. A short tubular bracket was attached transversely to the frame of the cycle at the center of gravity. A carrier pin was mounted to project horizontally from the hitch bracket; the pin engages with the tubular bracket on the cycle. To load the cycle, the user lifts the front wheel and slipd the tubular bracket on the cycle over the carrier pin as far as it will travel. He then goes to the opposite end of the cycle and lifts it to a level position, at which point he can slide the tube fully home on the supporting pin. This engages a horizontal rod on the cycle in a locating bracket on the hitch mount to prevent the cycle from rotating on the pin. A locking clamp secures the cycle in place. TITLE: Cycle Rack.
