Other Resources for Adaptive Bicycling

Current and recent PBOT projects and initiatives related to adaptive bicycling:

This pilot would further PBOT’s work to increase access to adaptive bicycling. PBOT’s current and past projects include:

  • Adaptive bikes for the Safe Routes to School in-school bike safety education program for students who would benefit from them.
  • One-on-one bike riding instruction to students who haven’t successfully learned how to ride a bike with the Safe Routes program.
  • Full scholarships for Bike First (http://www.nwdsa.org/what_we_do/bike_first.html) for all eligible Portland students. Bike First is a camp teaching riding skills to students with disabilities including those with Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, visual impairments, and developmental delays. Safe Routes has been a key sponsor of this effort since 2008.
  • Purchasing and donating a trailer full of Senior Trikes to Portland Parks and Recreations for its Senior Recreation program.
