Just Arms, Legs are for whimps....

So my old man and baby Bro are members so I decided to stop lurking around and signed up.

I'm a paraplegic and have been riding my hand cycle for the last 2 years, I have been doing some TT's and will be doing my second triathlon in August.

If you are from Calgary and see some odd looking dude riding out to Cochrane with his arms give me a wave.

Welcome , paraguy.

I'm also a handcyclist, not paraplegic, got hit a few years ago, mangled my left leg.

I ride a Invacare XLT Pro, what's your ride?

No racing but several metrics and a full century.
