The Handcycling Association of The UK (HandcyclingUK) is a charity (Reg no: 1096646) that promotes handcycling as a sport and as a recreational activity. Handbiking is great exercise and helps keep you in good physical shape. You can be as competitive as you like or just ride your hand bike socially with your family and friends.
We support handcycle racing in Britain and in Europe, British handcyclists are pioneering downhill and other scary off-road activities and we organise our own longer distance road riding events where a group of hand cyclists will meet up for a ride. You can find more information on the Racing, Off Road or On the Road pages.
