Our Team is committed and creative. Our Mission is to make a difference in the lives of special needs children by educating families of the benefits and advantage of cycling.
Our team is a group of recreational and avid cyclists that love being outdoors and exploring new views. Getting together to work for AdaptAbility has helped us increase our passion and desires for the growth of our cycling community. It has also helped us realize the need for children with special needs to take advantage of all the benefits that cycling can provide them.
AdaptAbility is here to change the way children with special needs exercise by providing them with Adaptative bicycles so their exercise can be advantageous and fun.
