About Us & Our Story
At age 92, Rosemary Sorce inspired her family to want to make her final season on earth a little more meaningful and enjoyable. Although front passenger bikes existed, the cost was a barrier for any middle-class family. In August 2018, Wade and Jill Houser together found a solution: a cargo style bicycle retrofitted to carry Rosemary. The design is simple, no hand brakes or gears but the ride is amazing. Together, Rosemary and her family ride everyday all through Boise and Meridian, Idaho creating smiles and memories.
We are Rosemary's family and friends who witnessed how the bike impacted her life and wanted to expand the experience to others. We have formed a not for profit organization 501c3 to be able to provide access to affordable passenger bikes to families with loved ones experiencing age, health or disability related barriers.
