Adaptive Cycling

Adaptive Cycling is any form of cycle adapted for people with disabilities. We are always looking to expand our knowledge and resources related to adaptive biking. Please reach out to us if you have suggestions or feedback!

HUB Webinar on Adaptive Biking, "Cycling for All Abilities"

What is adaptive cycling and who does it? Why don't we see more people using adaptive bikes on our roads and trails? Come learn about the innovative bikes and programs that are getting more disabled people cycling, and how you can help make cycling more inclusive. 

This webinar (June 2021) features Jocelyn Maffin, an avid hand cyclist that believes everyone should have a bike. She works as the Manager of Information Resources at Spinal Cord Injury BC. In her spare time, Jocelyn is helping to build Handcycling BC, a community promoting adaptive cycling for recreation and working to reduce barriers to adaptive cycling in BC. This webinar was moderated by Navdeep Chhina, HUB Cycling’s Director of Campaigns and Inclusion.






Secondhand equipment is a great way to get started. Bike rental spots and hand-cycling clubs in your area may also provide you the opportunity to test equipment (e.g. tandem bikes, handcycles) before you invest. More information on places to source adaptive bikes below:

HUB Cycling Local Committees: HUB is always looking for voices of all ages and abilities to join our volunteer-driven local committees and lend their voice to making changes to improve biking across Metro Vancouver. Get in touch with the local committee in your neighborhood to highlight sections of your route that are particularly challenging that you would like to see action on, or join a monthly meeting!
