If you have a disability and can’t ride a two-wheeled bike, or if you just don’t feel comfortable riding a two-wheeled bike, there are adaptive bikes that you can ride.
The Greater Acton Adaptive Bike Coalition was recently formed to make adaptive bikes available for use on our wonderful new rail trails. We’re holding a kickoff event on May 5 to let people in the community try riding adaptive bikes for free.
AccesSportAmerica, an organization that offers adaptive sports to people with disabilities, is running our Adaptive Bike Day event at Pedal Power bike shop in Acton. Staff will help adjust riders to the bikes and teach them how to ride them.
Try out a range of adaptive bikes for free. We will have:
Adult and pediatric handcycles
A side-by-side bicycle
Tandem bike with handcyle cranks.
If you’re interested in attending, RSVP to Leslie Johnson, 978-618-1812 or email@example.com.
