Cycling is a fully integrated sport, meaning athletes with disabilities can enjoy it alongside family and friends. Sportable’s cycling program includes indoor cycling sessions with a strength training component during the colder months and outdoor rides in the warmer weather. Cycling is a great fitness and cross training opportunity and also has competitive outlets for those interested in racing and/or triathlon. A variety of handcycles, recumbent trikes, and tandem bikes are available for athlete use.

Meet our coach
Lucille has been a Physical Therapist for 32 years, 8 with adult (primarily spinal cord injury, head injury, amputee rehab), then nearly 25 in pediatrics with birth – 21 all levels of function, diagnosis’ etc. She now still does PT at Children’s while managing one of our satellite clinics of PT, OT and Speech Therapy. She was dual certified as ATC and PT for years. She worked on Ski Patrol part time for 8 years, and was EMT at that time (1985-1993.) Lucille also had some experience with adaptive skiing during those years. Lucille has a passion for fitness and health, and strongly feels this is important for everyone.
Lucille began her cycling career in high school while bike touring (worked for American Youth Hostels in their office and learned a lot about touring there). She continued touring in college and after graduation, but transitioned to mostly road biking in the mid- late ‘80s. Now she classifies herself as an avid cyclist, logging over 4500 miles last year, including 6 century rides.
