Handcycling

GO
BACK
Handcycles weigh up to 40 pounds, and a good cycler will average 15 to 18 miles per hour, with downhill coasting peaking at about 50 mph. Several models are available: most cost between $2,000 and $3,000. If you want to try before you buy, cruise the Abilities Expos or contact a local rehabilitation center or the VAMC.
