Adaptive Cycling Program

The BORP Adaptive Cycling Center in Berkeley hosts one of the largest collections of adaptive bikes in the world, including handcycles, recumbent bikes, side-by-side tandems, and other models. The Center serves children, youth and adults with physical disabilities and visual impairments, as well as their family and friends.

The Center is located near a quiet bike path in Aquatic Park, which connects with the San Francisco Bay Trail, allowing extensive cycling opportunities. Adaptive cycling means that everyone, regardless of physical disability, can engage in exhilarating exercise while experiencing the beauty and inspiration of the outdoors.
