Bicycling and hand-cycling are sports that promote mainstream participation in sport and can provide recreational opportunities for a lifetime. A variety of rides geared toward different ability levels are offered throughout the spring, summer and fall. The Cycling program focuses on promoting physical fitness, confidence, socialization, independence and fun. People with a wide variety of abilities participate in each ride and family members and friends are encouraged to come along.
Rides are held on hard-packed or paved trails, such as the Provo and Jordan River Trails, the Rail Trail, and other trails in the Park City area. The diversity in terrain is perfect for enjoyable outings while challenging individuals with a disability to get out and participate in another exciting activity with the National Ability Center.
A variety of adaptive cycles, such as hand cycles, One-Off mountain bikes, 3-wheeled trikes, recumbent and typical and side-by-side tandems are available for use. As with other types of adaptive equipment at the National Ability Center, once a participant has been fitted and is comfortable using the equipment, it may be signed out for personal use for a rental fee.
