OAS has a fleet of over a dozen adaptive cycles to accommodate a wide range of abilities! We have several ways to experience these bikes and to get out and ride including FREE Open House events, weekly cycling at Pine Nursery Park, private sessions and tours.
Cycling is open to many individuals including those with physical, cognitive, and developmental disabilities. Please note that our cycling fleet is growing and while we will do our best to accommodate all individuals, we may not have the proper bike for everyone at this time.

ADAPTIVE CYCLE FIT-UPS:
If you’re interested in participating in our Cycle Sessions or scheduling a Private Session, you’ll want to be fit-up first to make sure we have the right bike for you!
These 90-minute sessions include 1 on 1 time with OAS staff to explore the various options and get accustomed to the bike. You’ll also get to ride for 30-45 minutes in the vicinity of the OAS Warehouse. Sign up is required at least one week in advance. Fit-ups are booked as appointments and are based on OAS staff availability.
Schedule: Any day starting after Memorial Day weekend, advance scheduling required.
Location: OAS warehouse, 63025 OB Riley Road, Suite #12 Bend, Oregon 97703
Note: The OAS cycle fleet is growing, we will do our best to find a cycle that fits you, but at this time we may not be able to accommodate every individual’s needs.
