Para-cycling introduction and assessment camp
[Mon Jan 6 5:50:41 PST 2014]
Come meet with the National Cycling Centre, Velo NB and Cycling Canada staff and volunteers. At this camp we will introduce you to the various aspects of para-cycling – what the options open to you are based on your disability and level, show you some of the equipment we have available for you to use and do a little testing to see if you think cycling would be a good sport for you. If you already have some cycling gear please bring it to the camp so we can see if you have the right setup and see if maybe we can optimize your performance – either on your current setup or with something we have for you to borrow. We will also talk about events for para-cycling, local, national and even international – stuff to get you excited and planning!!
We would like to meet with each of you individually....
