SPRINGFIELD -- A group of local children got a set of new wheels. The Secretary of State's Office partnered with AMBUCS in an effort to give special-needs children the opportunity to experience the thrill of riding a tricycle.

The trikes are specially engineered bikes which can be hand- or foot-operated. They're designed to accommodate all riders. AMBUCS has been demonstrating the AM-Trykes at the Illinois State Fair since 2003.
