Friends of Greensboro/Catalyst Sports — Adaptive Mountain Biking Experience and Adaptive Sports Expo
The 2021 event made Greensboro, NC the 9th and final city on the tour with Catalyst Sports for adaptive mountain biking. The adaptive sports expo and clinic created awareness and promoted outdoor recreation in an inclusive and accessible environment through the use of adaptive cycles. The variety of adaptive equipment and cycles allowed people with various physical disabilities an opportunity to experience the gift of nature on a trail. People who did not think they could ride again were amazed by the experience! It was remarkable to see firsthand.
Participants had the opportunity to ride a mountain bike outdoors in nature and experience the fun a biking trail has to offer. Participants had the opportunity to learn more about adaptive equipment, mountain biking and trails and provide feedback to instructors and staff allowing them to shape the direction of future inclusive outdoor recreation experiences in Greensboro. This event provided quality instructors, a variety of bikes and tools, training, trail inspection, and recommendations for a sustainable trail.
