    hi there -

    this is my first post; i'm not an avid cycler, but i would like to be - along with my partner who has cerebral palsy. he is very active, he gets around a lot, and we are looking to increase our shared outdoor activities.

    we currently live in brooklyn, ny, but we are looking to move upstate soon [poughkeepsie-new paltz area]. we would love to find an area retailer that sells handcycles so that he could try them out before we order a super-expensive piece of equipment.

    does anybody know of a new york area location where he could take some things for a spin?

    if this is the wrong forum, i apologize. i didn't see something immediately that was geared toward people with disabilities. can someone redirect me if there is a more proper forum?

    thanks millions,
    -a.

    Your at the right place, im sure somebody here will beable to help you, but let me give you a start.

    There is a local handcycle dealer in NYC called Oasis, there website is oasisllc.com. They sell a few different hand cycles, and quite a few other products. Im sure if you call them, or send them an email they will let you come down to there shop and test ride a few models.

    Another good general handcycling site, is http://www.handcyclequest.com , they have a great buyers guide too.

    THANK YOU!!!

    i ran out of time to look at it today, but i'll certainly give them a call when I have time.

    thank you for your fast response...it's really great of you to pass on that information. it's very important to us; being able to do something like try a bike that's built for him means so much to me. and to him! to ride together - wow!

    be well,
    -a.
