Handcycles For Building Strength And Fitness

Handcycles are a great way for athletes and handicapped to build upper body strength while enjoying the outdoors. Gyms are fine but cycling in the fresh air is an awesome aerobic exercise as well.There is a lot of adjust-ability designed into handcycle seats,footrests,hand grips, belts, etc to accommodate different sizes and body styles as well as physical limitations. 

Most riders tend to opt for the recumbent handcycles which are a bit more stable due to the low center of gravity. The upright handcycles are often easier to mount and dismount but not quite as stable.
