Adaptive Cycling: Handcycles, Amputee Adaptation, Visual Impairment, and Other Needs Have a need for adaptive equipment to ride to compensate for a disability or loss of limb or function? This area is for discussion among those of us in the cycling world that are coming back from traumatic circumstances and tell the world, "No, you are not going to beat me down!"

Thought I'd drop this here...

@bobwysiwyg, glad you like it. It's pretty cool. There's also a making-of vid as well, if you're interested.
