Adaptive Cycling

Many different styles of accessible cycles are available for use at our weekly cycling programs throughout the summer, including hand cycles, tandems, adult tricycles, and cycles offering more significant seating support. Participants are encouraged to come try several bikes to find the one that’s most comfortable, with support from our friendly staff and volunteers.

Cycling programs are generally held May through October (please refer to schedule for participation eligibility).

How do I sign up?

  • Take a look at the program schedule on our home page and call All Out Adventures at 413-584-2052 and reserve a cycle. You can reserve a cycle for one hour during the program time. A few of the cycles are available for more than one hour based on availability. Ask the office for assistance in picking one out.

  • Come to the program with your completed liability and medical waiver. Check in with the program staff. The staff will provide you with instruction and assistance. The Friday cycling fee is $3 for each cycle. A person with a disability may bring one guest at no charge.
