The Handcycling Association of The UK (HandcyclingUK) is a charity (Reg no: 1096646) that promotes handcycling as a sport and as a recreational activity. Handbiking is great exercise and helps keep you in good physical shape. You can be as competitive as you like or just ride your hand bike socially with your family and friends.
We support handcycle racing in Britain and in Europe, British handcyclists are pioneering downhill and other scary off-road activities and we organise our own longer distance road riding events where a group of hand cyclists will meet up for a ride. You can find more information on the Racing, Off Road or On the Road pages.

Very disappointed with the answer from Ironman about Velothon Wales, I think the points they make are very loose and they clearly have no knowledge of handcycles.

Hi Matthew,

The decision has been taken after a detailed review of the overall risks associated from a participant using such items or equipment to the large numbers of cyclists, who themselves have a very wide variation of skill level, participating in the event, that hand cyclists will unfortunately not be permitted on this event course for 2017. The consequences for safety, accident rates and ultimately the time taken to complete the ride must be considered. We continually review our policies on permitted bicycles and equipment. We are doing a format review for VELOTHON in 2018, so we can suggest that the inclusion for hand cycles will be further considered due to the number of interested in 2017. We are sorry for the delay in response, but this was not a decision we took lightly and reviewed the options thoroughly in a bid to accommodate hand cycles, but I’m afraid hand cycles will not be permitted for the 2017.

We offer our apologies that this is not the answer you were hoping for and that we unfortunately are unable to accommodate hand cyclists.
Best wishes.
