North Star Sports located on Main Street in Burlington is an incredible bike shop. Although they might seem small, they are extremely knowledgable in their bikes, bike repairs, and making adjustments to bikes. Bruce DeGuise is the guy to go to about any adaptation that you might need on your childs’ bike. They also have to be one of the friendliest bike mechanic shops that I have visited. Definitely worth a visit to see how they can help you or your child get out safely on the road.
This amazing non-profit in Massachusetts makes “Buggies” to donate to children that have mobility issues and want to access the great outdoors. These sturdy, light-weight, all-terrain Buggies allow easy access to all types of outdoor environments that may require moving across sand, gravel, dirt, grass and even snow. Buggy should only be used by children who have independent, unsupported trunk and head control.
