Bike Clinic

Biking with family and friends is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, exercise and simply have fun.

At our Bicycle Clinic, our Bike Team will work together with your family to determine what type of bike, adaptations, and tips and tricks would make riding a bike successful.

This is an interdisciplinary clinic put together by TVCC's Seating & Mobility, Recreational Therapy, Social Work, and Physiotherapy Services
