Tandem Cycle image use covered by Adaptive Cycling
Handcycles allow individuals with lower-body disabilities to pedal using their hands and arms. These cycles are usually recumbent cycles: the rider sits lower to the ground in a chair rather than on an upright seat. Handcycles are available for recreational and competition use and should be chosen based on the size of the rider and the intended use. For more information, see the Wikipedia Handcycle page.
