Bend, Oregon is known as a premier destination for mountain bikers across the globe. Quickly the same is becoming true for off-road cyclists with disabilities. If you have a disability and are looking to try this sport or explore the area with experienced instructors, OAS is expanding its opportunities for adaptive mountain biking.
Currently, OAS has two off-road handcycles in our fleet, a ReActive Adaptations Bomber and Nuke. The Bomber is well suited for individuals with lower level spinal cord injuries, good core and upper body strength. The Nuke is suitable for almost any individual who can ride a traditional handcycle and can be equipped with adaptive pedals and brakes for individuals with impaired grip strength.
Additionally, if have your own off-road handcycle or mountain bike and are looking for a guide or instruction to explore or improve your riding, OAS can help.
OAS offers 2 and 4+ hour private sessions on a Bend area trail. OAS has certified mountain bike instructors on staff and in our volunteer pool as well as individuals experienced in off-road hand cycling.
