Handcycling Loop at Shady Rest Park

Do you have Adaptive Options Experiences you'd like to share? Find out How!

  • This advanced 5-mile ride starts from Shady Rest Park. Warm up on the undulations of the Shady Rest Path, then take the sharp turn that leads under the tunnel. After the vista point and a quick descent to the Industrial Park, gear up for a long, steep uphill section. After this big push, you’ll be rewarded with views of the White Mountains and the Sherwins. From here the ride is much more mellow as you take the Town Loop to the Sierra Park Connector and then climb up to the Library. At this point you can either follow the sidewalk by the hospital, or try your cycle on the road. Return by way of the tunnel.
