Each year Paralyzed Veterans of America Racing (PVAR) conducts an adaptive cycling clinic benefitting veterans and youth within the local community. Networking with the local PVA Chapter and other neighboring NGOs, this one-day event highlights the opportunities in recreational and competitive para-cycling for physically-challenged cyclist.

PVA Racing Team

The Paralyzed Veterans Racing Team, which is comprised of paralyzed veterans and other veterans with disabilities, competes at cycling and marathon events around the country. The team focuses on races such as those on the U.S. Handcycling Racing Series, cycling races which help veterans get into the pipeline to excel.

The team has two levels of support available to qualifying athletes (Open/A-Team) and involves other athletes on the team as Associate Members. Associate Members don’t receive stipends and are vetted by an active team member. Finally, each team member is independent in their Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). In cases where members need assistance with their ADLs and/or other necessary personal support to race, that coordination and cost will be the sole responsibility of the athlete.
