Handcycling is an inclusive sport that’s open to both adults and children. There are many different types of handcycles which can cater for many different disabilities – enabling those with limited function to be able to experience the freedom that cycling provides.
The Handcycling Association of The UK (HandcyclingUK) is a charity that promotes handcycling as a sport and as a recreational activity. Handbiking is great exercise and helps keep you in good physical shape. You can be as competitive as you like or just ride your hand bike socially with your family and friends.
HandCycle Taster Days
Handcycling UK run regular taster days during the Spring/Summer months. These are ‘open days’ where those interested can try the sport, using our own handcycles, in a safe environment, supervised by qualified British Cycling instructors. These days are aimed toward beginners, we also invite experienced handcyclists so there is always plenty of expertise around to learn from. So it doesn’t matter if you’ve never ridden a handcycle before, you can borrow one of ours for the weekend.
