Pueblo Active Community Environments (P.A.C.E.)

Adaptive Cycling Day - Cycle Different!

 Sunday, April 27th, 2014

11 am to 2 pm 

Parking lot at Main St and Grand 

by City Hall and SRDA 

Not everyone can ride a bike due to physical limitations due to injury, illness or natural aging. This is a day to help those with limited vision, balance or mobility to rediscover the joy of cycling! Great for carpal tunnel, shoulder or balance problems, stroke survivors and Parkinson's patients!

Angletech is an adaptive cycling store in Colorado Springs helping wounded warriors and others of all walks of life find a ride that is comfortable and allows them freedom of movement.  The shop will bring down a variety of cycles to demo ride such as tricycles and hand cycles. 

Colorado Springs has a Therapeutic Recreation program that uses a variety of these cycles every other Saturday during the warmer months.  We hope to open eyes in the non-profit community for future outreach opportunities to a large portion of our population living with a disability.  This free demo day in Pueblo has been arranged by P.A.C.E. as part of the Walk-n-Roll month to promote cycling for all.  

We will try to accommodate everyone that shows up but will give preference to those that make a reservation via email.  

Learn more about the joy and freedom of cycling for Parkinson's patients with the Ride with Larry project  this summer.
