Para-cycling includes athletes who have a visual disability and who have a physical disability. Cyclists with a visual impairment ride in tandem with a sighted guide, known as a pilot. There are also events on tricycles or hand cycles based on the disability. If competitive cycling is more your speed, there are competitions in road events, pursuit, sprint and individual time trials.
ParaSport and Recreation PEI has partnered with Cycling PEI and the Canadian National Institute for the Blind PEI Chapter to offer a cycling program for people with disabilities. The program is being offered as an 8-week pilot program every Wednesday from 6:30-8:00pm at the Brackley Commons.
