Bicycling and hand-cycling are life-long skills and sports that promote mainstream participation in a recreational world enjoyed by thousands of non-disabled citizens. 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 disabilities participate in each ride and family members and friends are also 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 variety in terrain allows for enjoyable outings while challenging individuals with disabilities to get out and participate in yet another exciting activity with the National Ability Center. Most rides begin at the Bronfman Recreation Center and Ranch; however, we do offer cycling adventure trips.
Hand cycles are available for individuals who have disabilities that limit the use of their legs, and tandem bicycles are used for beginning riders and those who are visually impaired.
