Handcycling for the Disabled and Wheelchair Users

Hand cycling (or handcycling) is an ideal way for wheelchair users to continue to enjoy cycling when not able to ride a traditional bike. Handcycles are operated by peddling by hand and enable those with a severe lower limb disability to travel greater distances as well as being able to join in with non-disabled cyclists. There are currently two types of hand cycle; one that connects to the front of a wheelchair and models designed to sit in.

Handcycling is a Paralympic sport and has been since 2004. Find details of handcycling for the disabled including clubs, sports events and suppliers of hand cycles and bikes listed below along with details of how to get involved.
