How to ride a bicycle trail with a disabled friend

We have a group of friends who would love to try the Central Lake Trail in Minnesota. One of our members is handicapped with a neurological disease (does not allow him to pedal with legs or arms). He still walks but has poor balance. We would love to do a trail together, five to eight adults, with assistance from someone who can pull him long. None of us is an expert cyclist; we just want to enjoy an adventure together! - Sandhya Jake Capistrant at Jake's Bikes in Alexandria, right off the trail, will rent you four-person bikes.

Contact Jake at jake@jakesbikes.com. The shop is at 611 3rd Ave. E.
