The mainstay of Desert Ability Center is our adaptive sports and recreational rehabilitation programs. Leading us off in 2010 was paracycling when we placed four amputee riders in the Tour de Palm Spring and the rest, as they say, is history.
We have continued participating in the Tour de Palm Springs increasing the number of riders with disabilities to over 100. Today we conduct monthly cycling clinics on the backroads of the Coachella Valley under our program called THE CYCLE CREW.
From mid October to the end of April paracyclists are welcome to join us for 8-25 mile rides. Able body riders are welcome to join us. Check our calendar for dates and locations here or on Facebook at The Cycle Crew.
Damian joined the adult riders during the 2017-18 season completing a 25 mile ride.
The Cycle Crew monthly rides begin a 7:30 am behind La Quinta City Hall. Handcycles, recumbent cycles and youth cycles are provided.
We are always honored when our veterans join our rides. Pictured here are retired veterans Jim (USA) and Ed (USAF).
