Welcome to Inclusive Cycling International!
ICI promotes Cycling for People with Disabilities worldwide and helps local organizations develop programs for adults and youth in their communities. We provide on site training, remote advice, and assistance in acquiring cycles and equipment through donations and fundraising.
February 2018 – Santiago, Chile
ICI will be collaborating with our Chilean partners Wheel the World to launch a weekly Adaptive Cycling Program at Santiago’s “CicloRecreoVia”. Like many South American cities, Santiago closes over 20 km of downtown city streets every Sunday to create a community space for cycling, walking, running, etc. Until now, people with disabilities were not able to join the cycling activities as there were almost no adaptive cycles in Chile, and those were privately owned. Thanks to a grant from the US Embassy in Chile to fund a training by ICI, generous donors in the US who donated cycles, and sponsorship from Chilean companies to buy 2 more bikes, Wheel the World Santiago will soon have 4 handcyles, 2 Foot Trikes, 1 two wheel Tandem, and a Trike tandem available for use by the disability community. Greg and Jenny will spend a week in Santiago training volunteers and staff in February 2018.
September 2017 – Windhoek, Namibia
Wow! We’re just back from 2 weeks in Namibia in Southern Africa where we conducted trainings and donated bikes to programs in three regions. Check out all the photos and reports on our Facebook page. ICI donated handcyles to the Windhoek Wheelability Sports Club, the Oshana Heroes Sports Club, and the Eenahna Sports Club, all of which provide programs for people with disabilities. At each workshop 10 – 20 people got to cycle for the first time. We look forward to seeing them continue to use the handcycles and develop their programs.
2016 – Zimbabwe, Cuba, Namibia
2015 – Ecuador
