Cycling was introduced as a Paralympic sport in Seoul in 1988 and is now practised in more than 40 countries.
Depending on disability classification, riders use a bicycle, tricycle, tandem or handcycle. Para-cycling competitions include road and track events for both men and women, with cyclists grouped together according to disability classification. The main world Para-cycling events include the Paralympic Games, World Championships, European Championships and World Cups. Within Australia, the National Championships and National Handcycle Series (NHS) are the major Para-cycling events.
In 2013, Cycling SA added Para Cyclist classifications to its State Titles for the first time, and they have been represented at almost every title since!
Cycling South Australia also hosts multiple rounds of the National Para Road Series. For more details on these events please see the series information page here!
