Who We Are

Serving Allamakee, Buffalo, Crawford, Fillmore, Houston, Jackson, Juneau, La Crosse, Monroe, Richland, Sauk, Trempealeau, Vernon, Winona, & Winneshiek counties since May 2015

Western Wisconsin Wheels raises funds to provide AmTrykes to children in our service area who are unable to use a standard bike.

Annually, we host an Adaptive Tryke rodeo to custom fit each child to an Amtryke.

As of July 2017, Western Wisconsin Wheels has delivered 50 Trykes! Each Tryke costs between $500-$1300. Funding for the bikes is provided by Western Wisconsin Wheels, Children's Miracle Network, and state/county funding.
