Handcyles and tandem
Cyclists with disabilities meet up to pursue this pastime together. Across three programs — Philadelphia, Chester County, and Wilmington — we have a fleet of hand-cycles and tandem bikes of all types and configurations, adapted to meet almost any rider's need.
Volunteers with the Center make the sport of cycling accessible. Our volunteers do an awesome job, ensuring everyone gets out for a ride, whether you are a long time participant, or new to the program.
Our goal is for a strong ride and a good time to be had by all.
Our mechanics keep the bikes in great working condition, and are usually available to ride along with anyone who requests it.
For those who have a more competitive nature, PCAS organizes participation in local ride and race events throughout the season, including our own annual fundraiser Cinco de Mayo Bike Ride and Walk.
Our setting in the heart of Fairmount Park along the Schuylkill River provides a beautiful backdrop to a day of riding and camaraderie. Riders can cycle the eight mile loop around the river, passing by the Art Museum, while others can confine their ride to the closed MLK Drive.
Our Chester County program meets in Exton Park, along the Chester Valley Trail. It offers flat, paved terrain that is ideal for recreational riders.
Kicked off in 2018, we’re excited to expand to our third locale for adapted cycling.
