Whistler Adaptive offers a variety of biking programs, ranging from cruising the Valley Trail to tackling Whistler’s off-road single track trails. Our biking programs are for everyone with cognitive, sensory or physical disabilities. Whistler has a range of paved and gently graded trails for novice to experienced riders.
Rent a hand-cycle and tour the town with friends or take a guided hand-cycle and bike tour with a Whistler Adaptive volunteer. We rent hand-cycles for kids and adults, including a 14 speed cruiser with mountain drive or a 28 speed racer with free wheel crank. These hand-cycles are perfect for individuals with mobility or balance issues as they are powered by the arms rather than the legs and provide a low centre of gravity. Cummerbunds can be used for support around the legs or core.
For visually impaired athletes, Whistler Adaptive can guide you along the Valley Trail, through the Lost Lake Trails or other Whistler mountain bike trails. With high-visibility vests and equipment, we can hit the trails.
Whistler Adaptive Sport Academy athletes go out every week on the Lost Lake Trails with local legend Sylvie Allen. With several volunteers and staff available, the group can be split into beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. Athletes work on turning and balance, technical single track or bridges. Get in touch to join this biking program every week or just once this summer.
