Burke Rehab Hospital Hand Cycling Program Recruiting NEW Riders!
Hits : 360

Hello Friends!


We are super excited to be preparing for our 5th year of Hand Cycling here at Burke!  We are actively recruiting new participants for our indoor hand cycle training program. 


Weekly indoor practices will be offered on Tuesdays from 5:00-6:30PM for a 6-week session running February 5th – March 13th 2018.  We meet here in the Burke Hospital, 2 West Gym – Ground Floor, in White Plains, NY.  We have plenty of free parking and are easily accessible by para-transit or public transit.


Practices will include a proper fitting to a hand cycle that meets your needs; strength, flexibility and endurance training; along with detailed instructions on how to operate a hand cycle. Participants must have moderate upper body strength and mobility and be able to independently self-propel, shift, brake, steer and follow instructions. 


If you are interested in joining us, please complete the attached form ASAP and return it to me.  Space is limited!


Once the warm weather returns, we will hold monthly hand cycle clinics here on campus on our outdoor track.  These clinics are open to all participants and we welcome returning riders!


Hope your holidays were bright and merry and we wish you all a Happy New Year! – Team Burke
