Adaptive Cycling

A Unique Cycling Program

Our adaptive Cycling program is based in Atlanta, GA. Through the generous support of our local Atlanta donors we have had the unique opportunity to create an adaptive cycling program on the Silver Comet Trail which consists of monthly rides, fittings, rentals, and joining the community for other races and rides.

 
Monthly Ride

Each month we ride together out of the Bike Barn on the Silver Comet Trail. There are adaptive bikes available to borrow or bring your own to ride with the group. Cycling volunteers provide support along the trail.

Location: The Bike Barn, 4342 Floyd Rd SW, Mableton, GA 30126

Time: 4th Sunday of each month, 10am - 12pm

Fee: $10 to rent. Free if you bring your own bike.

 

Volunteer: Bring your bike and join us to support adaptive cyclists.

Fittings and Rentals

Our adaptive cycle loan program is designed to allow individuals with a physical disability to be fitted for an adaptive bike and to take the bike on loan to learn and enjoy all the benefits of cycling.

If you have never tried an adaptive bike before please first schedule a fitting before renting. Once you have either ridden with us or completed a fitting, you are free to rent that bike whenever you would like.
