Cycling with Adaptive Sports Connection

Getting Started with Cycling

The first step in our cycling program is to complete a Participant Profile then you should schedule an ability assessment and equipment fitting at our Discover Cycling or Bikes To Go events. There is no fee for an evaluation. Once the right type of equipment is determined, you are free to join in our group rides! You can reserve a spot at a Discover Cycling (adults) or Bikes To Go (children) clinic from the information below.

Discover Adaptive CyclingThis is our bike evaluation clinic for adults. Adults with disabilities are evaluated for the perfect adaptive bike by physical and occupational therapists at Glacier Ridge Metro Park.

"Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of riding a bike."

- John F Kennedy


At Adaptive Sports Connection, we strive to help children and adults with disabilities be able to bike when and where they want.

Cycling is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, improve cardiovascular fitness, and socialize with friends and family - now with advanced technology in adaptive equipment everyone can participate!

At Adaptive Sports Connection we offer:

  • Discover Cycling for adults with physical disabilities or people 24y/o+ with developmental disabilities to work with Occupational and Physical therapists for a full bike evaluation and an opportunity to ride adaptive bikes. Opportunities to pursue adaptive equipment grants are also available in this program.
  • Adaptive Mountain Biking for anyone interested in off-road cycling. We have hand and foot-propelled options available. These rides take place at Alum Creek Mountain Bike Trail Phase 1. 

  • Group Rides: for anyone who has already received an evaluation (at Bikes To Go or Discover Cycling) Saturday mornings on the Alum Creek Bike Trail starting in Westerville.
  • Bikes To Go for kids 23 and under to work with therapists to own your own bike.

Our goal is to give everyone with disabilities access to cycling!
