Adaptive Bikes Program

Cycling is a fantastic way for us to keep healthy, explore the beautiful outdoors and have fun with our friends and family. Thankfully, advances in technology now enable us to adapt the way in which we ride, making it accessible to almost all abilities!  

What is the BCH Adaptive Cycling Program? 
The BCH Adaptive Cycling Program helps people of all abilities to enjoy cycling.
This program provides a unique opportunity for Ballarat locals to explore adaptive bikes, trikes and accessories – and to receive professional support along the way!

What is an adaptive bike?
Adaptive bikes are alternative bike models, that are modified to suit the needs of the individual. Some examples include:  

  • Handcycles  
  • Recumbents 
  • Trikes  
  • Electric assisted.
