Handcycling

Burke is happy to be in the 6th year of its community handcycling program. Funding for the program was made possible through a Quality of Life Grant from the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation. Recruitment for new participants is ongoing. The program is designed to offer participants an opportunity to try a variety of handcycles in a supported environment. We have also established an off-season training program that includes regular cardio, strength and flexibility exercises, using the cycles and other specialized equipment to enhance endurance and skill.

Appropriate applicants with physical disabilities would include those who have an interest in handcycling, who can get themselves to Burke’s main campus in White Plains, and who have a minimum of gross upper body strength/movement in order to move the hand pedals. Beginners are welcome—there are plenty of experienced bikers and therapists on hand to assist with transfers and techniques for using the bikes. 

If you are interested in our handcycling program and would like to learn more, please email AdaptiveSports@Burke.org. To participate, you will need to fill out an adaptive recreation registration packet.
