Adaptive Bikeshare in San Francisco Launches this Week through November
Dear Colleagues and Community Members,
Bay Wheels and BORP Adaptive Sports are thrilled to announce that handcycles and trikes for people with disabilities will, for the first time, be available on a regular schedule for use in San Francisco. We are especially excited to offer these adaptive cycles in Golden Gate Park during the weekly Sunday street closures when the park’s roads are transformed into a community celebration of mobility. The program will include handcycles, adaptive trikes, and a side-by-side tandem bike. Staff from BORP, the region’s leading provider of accessible recreation and adaptive sports for people with mobility-related disabilities, will be on-hand to fit, train, and assist riders on how to use the adaptive cycles. The program starts July 28 and will run every Sunday through November in Golden Gate Park from 11 am – 4 pm.
