Upcoming Webinar – Adaptive Cycling: From Rare to Everywhere

THU, JUN 6 | 12-12:30 PM | ZOOM

What is adaptive cycling/handcycling and who does it? Why don’t we see more people using adaptive bikes on our roads and trails?

Come learn about the innovative bikes and programs that are getting more people with physical disabilities cycling, and how you can help make cycling more inclusive.

This webinar will feature Jocelyn Maffin, an avid handcyclist who believes everyone should have a bike. Jocelyn helped launch BC’s first adaptive cycling club as part of her work at Spinal Cord Injury BC and she’s working to make adaptive cycling more accessible for people who want to ride all over the province.

Try out a handcycle or adaptive bike & learn to ride:

Adaptive Bike Clinic & Ride (ABC+) – Monthly sessions in Vancouver and satellite clinics around BC

Here’s your chance to try out a handcycle, recumbent or upright trike that works for you and take it for a spin. It’s a 90 minute session that includes basic cycling skills, orientation to the bike/trike and a guided ride on park trails.  Clinics are also a great way to try out different types of handcycles or adaptive bikes, get hands on practice and go for a ride!
