In honor of Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month, Burke Rehabilitation Hospital is hosting a Free Hand Cycling Clinic on the Burke campus at 785 Mamaroneck Avenue in White Plains.  Try hand-cycling on a variety of bikes using a closed track on our beautiful grounds.

This event is open to all abilities but participants should have enough upper body strength/movement to move the hand pedals.  There will be many experienced bikers and therapists on-hand to assist people with getting on and off the bikes, as well as aid in using the bikes.

This is a great opportunity to get to know the community.  Light refreshments are included.

Pre-registration is required.  For more information and to register for this free event, contact Alexandra Oudheusden, director of Therapeutic Recreation at 914-597-2248 or by email aoudheusden@burke.org

If you cannot make it to this event, there is also the Heels & Wheels 5K Road Race and Walk on Sept. 28 that is open to hand-cyclists and wheelchair users, as well as runners and walkers.
