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, bi-weekly cycling at Pine Nursery Park, and private sessions.
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.
