Who We Are
Inclusive Cycling International is committed to assisting local organizations and leaders develop inclusive programs which they will run in their local communities. We are committed to the full inclusion of people with disabilities in the planning and implementation of our projects but of course welcome the involvement of allies and partners. We have personally seen and experienced how Cycling is much more than just a sport for someone with a disability. Our staff and board are all passionate cyclists who love to see the smile of a first time rider pedaling for the first time and the excitement of their family and friends.
