“Handivélotourisme” cycling tourism for the handicapped

A handicap and a bike, two compatible things !

The association has strong principles with regards to cycling being an activity for everyone. For this reason and to permit handicapped people, the blind and partially sighted, to participate and take advantage of our proposals, we have put special equipment at their disposal.

The association has acquired 9 tandems, of which one is electrically assisted with rear rider steering, 3 electrically assisted bikes, and a “stricker”, a trailer attachment devise, adapted to wheelchairs allowing them to be connected to a hand bike. This equipment is destined for the use of the blind and partially sighted along with people suffering from balance disorders.

Sponsors and our network of bike rentals, along with care associations for handicapped people in the Vaucluse, the Alpes de Haute Provence and the Var, are in the process of producing numerous adapted outings.

In the heart of the Vaucluse, the association Valentin Haüy (Apt / Cavaillon) has made it possible through such outings for handicapped people to explore and discover the region.
