The Orthotic & Prosthetic Activities Foundation recently launched the First Cycle Clinic in Greenville, S.C.
First Cycle was developed by John Kinder and Brian Kaluf, CP, of Ability Prosthetics, who wanted to offer adaptive cycling opportunities for children and adults facing physical or mobility challenges. Roger C. Peace and Heather’s Ride provided a variety of bikes for participants to try, including handcycles, trikes and tandems, specific to the challenge or injury. Instruction and coaching was through Roger C. Peace and staff from Greenville Cycle and Multi Sport and included several Paralympic cyclists and coaches who had recently competed in the International Cycling Federation Paracycling Championships in Greenville.
First Cycle is sponsored by Ability Prosthetics & Orthotics, Shriners Hospital for Children/Greenville, Roger C. Peace Rehabilitation Hospital, Endolite and Paceline in partnership with Greenville Cycle and Multi Sport and Heather’s Ride.
