On June 9, San Francisco will host an Adaptive Cycling event where youth and adults with physical disabilities will be able to test and ride bicycles at the Sunday Streets event in the Dogpatch.

The SFMTA, Mayor’s Office of Disability, Department of Aging and Adult Services, Bay Area Outreach and Education Program (BORP) and the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition are thrilled to be partnering together to put on this event on June 9.

BORP has the country’s largest and most diverse collection of bicycles for use by people with physical disabilities and will offer orientation and training to new riders and allow use of their bicycles on the Sunday Streets route.  Handcycles, tandems, recumbent trikes, and therapeutic trikes will be available in adult and youth sizes.

Bicycling continues to grows in San Francisco and the city and partners are working to make streets safer and more inviting for people of all ages and abilities to bike.  The June 9th Adaptive Cycling Event will open up bicycling to even more people in San Francisco during the car-free Sunday Streets event.

Stay tuned for details on the event location and ways you can volunteer to make sure it’s a success.
