Did you know?

  • Adaptive riders use a variety of off-road cycles, like their able-bodied counterparts, to explore trails, mountain bases, and technical single tracks. The rider usually experiences a variety of twists and turns, hills, and occasional small jumps or rock drops.
  • Riders need to be prepared for the bumps, jars, and possible rollovers by equipping themselves with helmets, gloves, and knee and elbow pads. More aggressive and experienced riders equip themselves with body armor, sometimes called gladiator suits.
