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.
