Adaptive Cycle Rides
We are excited to be resuming our adaptive cycle rides this summer and welcome both returning and new riders!  

Cycle rides are group outings on the linear trail and are for adult cyclists of all abilities who have a physical disability or visual impairment.  Rides are designed to be enjoyable for riders of all abilities, so each ride may break into several groups based on ability, speed & distance desired. All riding is on the Cheshire Linear Trail which is a paved trail, free from traffic.  Riders may bring their own bike or reserve a bike to use from the Gaylord Sports Association.  Typical rides average 60-90 minutes and 3-8 miles.  For new riders, we will schedule a time prior to your first ride for an individual cycle fit to determine which cycle will work best for you.  We have times available on Thursday, June 10th; please contact us to schedule a time!  

All rides require pre-registration; please see below for information on how to register.   
We are also recruiting volunteers for our cycle rides.  If you are interested in volunteering, or know someone who may be interested, please let us know!
