Bicycle Clinic

December 3rd Flatwoods Park 8 am – 11 am
14302 Morris Bridge Road – Thonotosassa, FL 33592

Designed for amputees and other adaptive cyclists at any level of experience and for occupational/physical therapists looking for an informative hands-on experience. Together, we’ll learn the biomechanical principles behind amputee bike riding and prosthetic/orthotic considerations. CEU approved for 2 credits.

Formal instruction for therapists and riders begins at 8 am, led by WCBL prosthetist/orthotist Bridget Lawler, LPO, CPO. Special guest Bobby Puckett, bilateral below knee amputee and competitive rider, will lead participants through the riding experience. Bicycle Outfitters and the Adaptive Sports Program at James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital are bringing their experts and the latest in cycling options for anyone to try.

Look for signs and Westcoast volunteers at the Park entrance for directions. Flatwoods charges a $2 parking fee per car. Refreshments will be provided by WCBL and after the educational session all riders are invited to join Bobby for a spin around the park!

Amputees and other participants please RSVP to Jennifer.Robinson@WCBL.com; Therapists please RSVP to Andrea.Puckett@WCBL.com or call them directly at 813-985-5000.
