What

Cycling is a fully integrated sport, meaning athletes with disabilities can enjoy it alongside family and friends. Sportable’s cycling program includes indoor cycling sessions with a strength training component during the colder months and outdoor rides in the warmer weather. Cycling is a great fitness and cross training opportunity and also has competitive outlets for those interested in racing and/or triathlon. A variety of handcycles, recumbent trikes, and tandem bikes are available for athlete use.
