It can be tough for individuals with cerebral palsy to find a sport they can participate in as kids, teens, or adults. You or your child might face limitations in terms of coordination, balance, motor ability due to spasticity, stiff muscles, or involuntary movements. Finding an activity that raises your heart rate can be a challenge.
The good news is that physical impairments do not have to prevent you from enjoying sports! There’s a whole world of adaptive sports designed for individuals with different levels of mobility. In this article we’ll introduce some of these sports and highlight one in particular: RaceRunning (also known as Frame Running), which is one of the most accessible and affordable sports out there for people with cerebral palsy.
Join RAD-Innovations this weekend at the Montreal Bicycle Show! The show starts Friday, February 21st and runs through Sunday, February 23, 2020.
We'll be joining over 250 exhibitors at the Montreal Olympic Stadium for what promises to be a great three days. This is Canada's biggest cycling-related show, so we're excited to participate! Come check out all the bikes, trikes, equipment, accessories, clothing, and more!
We'll be at Booth 301, right near the test track, and we'll have the ICE Full Fat, ICE Adventure, and HASE Kettwiesel recumbent trikes, the HASE Pino tandem bike, and our own RAD RaceRunner running trikes available for demo rides.
We're particularly excited to introduce our RAD RaceRunner running trikes to the cycling world - these trikes can be used for recreation or competition and are a wonderful aid to those who have mobility challenges, allowing almost anyone to walk or run on their own!
On Saturday, Pierre Julien will be joining us - he and his wife Claudette have logged thousands of miles around the world on their solar-charged electric assist HASE Pino. Come learn about his adventures and find out why the Pino is so well-suited for long-haul touring. Check out their blog French Frogs on the Road to learn more about Pierre & Claudette's Pino journey.
We hope to see you there!

Cornwall, Vermont – RAD-Innovations LLC™ is pleased to announce that it is accepting orders for the RAD RaceRunner™ running trike and will be shipping to North American customers in March 2020. There are four sizes available to fit a range of ages and body types. Base models are priced between US$1,550 and US$1,800 with additional features available to fine-tune the fit for the individual’s comfort and optimal positioning.
The RAD RaceRunner running trike is used by individuals who are challenged with balance, range of motion and mobility issues caused by conditions such as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida, stroke, or amputation, for example. A toddler with CP can be fitted to a small frame and run alongside their siblings, while a senior citizen rehabbing from knee replacement surgery or with balance issues can improve range of motion and strength using one of the larger sizes. The RAD RaceRunner running trike can be used in either recreational or competitive settings.
