National Cycling Centre Hamilton introduces para-cycling

Dozens came to an open house event at the National Cycling Centre Hamilton in Ancaster on Sunday to introduce and kick cycling into high gear.

An event dubbed ‘Try It On,’ is the first invite of its kind for the disabled and visually impaired who want to one day put rubber to the road for fun or maybe a medal around their neck.

The Shelley Gautier Foundation along with the NCCH want to create a “feeder” system for para-sports in Canada.

The cycling centre hopes events these boost awareness for all para-sports and provide a place for the natural camaraderie shared among the cyclists.
