What is Adaptive cycling?
Adaptive and inclusive cycling is a great way for individuals with disabilities to enjoy the freedom of movement and mobility. Bikes and trikes can be modified in a multitude of ways to suit the needs of any rider. No two disabilities are identical, so each adaptive bike is unique. Disability affects each and every one of us. Chances are good that you already know - or will soon meet - someone with a disability who could benefit from adaptive cycling equipment.
Adaptive bike and trike modifications make cycling a truly inclusive sport, allowing people of all ages and abilities to reap the many benefits of physical activity including fresh air, exercise, and social interaction. Using an adapted cycle is a fantastic way for everyone to have fun, gain more independence and enjoy a sense of freedom. Whatever type of cycle, adaptation, or support you need, there is likely to be a solution, whether you have a disability, lack balance, or want to improve your confidence.
Adaptive cycling can involve riding solo or with others. Bikes and trikes can be leg powered, hand powered, or both.
