BORP Cycling Goes to China

China's newest handcyclist.

BORP Cycling Coordinator Greg Milano is currently in Guangzhou, China for the Sports United US/China Inclusive Sports and Recreation Professional Exchange Program.

Chinese Track Team works out.

Greetings from China!  I am honored to be working with 9 other US delegates learning about adaptive programs in China and providing training for Chinese professionals and students.

We’ve visited several schools and provided several workshops already.  I brought a handcycle in my luggage (really I did!) and have been getting as many people as possible on the wheels.  No one here I have met yet has seen one in person before.  They have a bike path on the river, so of course I am trying to convince them to start a program just like BORP’s!

US delegates take on students from our host GETCH, refereed by US paralympic gold medalist and former BORP coach Susie Grimes.

Cycling Season Begins!

BORP’s Adaptive Cycling Center in Berkeley is open for group rides and independent riding and training.  BORP has the biggest and most diverse fleet of adaptive bikes in the world!  Over 65 handcycles, tandems, recumbent trikes, and therapeutic trikes are available in adult and youth sizes.  No appointment is necessary during regular hours.

BORP’s staff and volunteers can help you determine and adjust the best bike for you and get you on the road.  We encourage our riders to come as often as possible.  Over 30 miles of safe, mostly flat bike trails are accessible directly from our center.

Ride on your own or join our social and training rides for independent riders at 10 am on Saturday.  Or you can organize your own group meeting time and make it happen.
Youth under 18 must be accompanied by an adult guardian or join our youth group rides which begin in May.

See you at the bike house!
