Recumbent trikes make it easier for Wounded Warriors to get around

Angletech, a cycling shop in Colorado Springs is helping wounded warriors, get out and ride.

The shop sells recumbent bicycles and tricycles and can alter them to make it easier for anyone to ride. The shop works with military bases and Colorado Springs Parks and Rec, to host what they call, adaptive rides, "People come in, we loan them a cycle, no charge involved and we set you up. And we have our magic box of special adaptive bits to make things work, and people have a lot of fun," says owner Kelvin Clark.

The cycles also help wounded warriors get good exercise, and Clark adds, it gives them a sense of freedom to move in a different way.
