A tricycle that can buy

Hanaa from Shirley

Hi there,
My daughter has special needs and being advised to cycle every day by the physiotherapist .Unfortunately I can not cycle and she cycles within our area . Some kids they abuse her and make fun of her disability . Two weeks ago , two girls and one boy stopped her and were about to hit her . Luckly there was a police car going around and saved her and really these incidents occured many times . I just wondering if anyone has a tricycle for adults for reasonable price that I can buy to accompany her so I will be able to protect her while cycling.
