Cycling

Cycling is an exciting sporting event that tones muscles and strengthens the cardiovascular system. Special Olympics offers events from 500 meter time trials to 40 km road races.

Special Olympics athletes also can participate in Unified Sports® Cycling events. Special Olympics Unified Sports is a program that combines Special Olympics athletes and athletes without intellectual disabilities (partners) on sports teams for training and competition. In Unified Sports cycling, a tandem team consists of one Special Olympics athletes and one partner — the athlete or the partner may assume either the driver position (front) or the stoker position (rear) on the tandem.

As in all Special Olympics sports, athletes are grouped in competition divisions according to ability level, age and gender.
