Mary Free Bed Handcycle and Wheelchair Racing

Propelling forward with nothing but arm strength and conviction, wheelchair and handcycle racers at the Fifth Third River Bank Run compete against athletes from all over the world. The Mary Free Bed Guild has proudly sponsored the 25K wheelchair race since 1989 and the handcycle race since 2005. The Handcycling Team races against stiff competition.

Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital connects patients to wheelchair and handcycle racing teams.Handcycling Team

The Mary Free Bed handcycling team is a great way to get outside and cycle with a group of people who like to stay active. The team is competitive and travels to races throughout the country, such as the River Bank Run. Handcycling is for individuals 16 or older. Handcycling experience not necessary.
