Off-Road Paracycling

Designed to get PVA members and other Veterans outdoors, PVA’s off-road camps are a great way to experience the beauty of America’s national and state parks. The camps are organized in parks with trails able to meet the needs of adaptive bikes with a wider wheelbase. Participants can look forward to an exciting experience, while testing their endurance and skills, and increasing their confidence to tackle their next great adventure.

High-Performance Team

Made up entirely of Veterans, members of PVA’s High-Performance Team are some of the best paracyclists in the country. Individual members must meet a rigorous performance standard in order to earn a coveted spot on the team. Once selected, PVA’s High Performance athletes have the opportunity to take on some of the best competition in the world in high-profile racing events across the United States. As part of their High-Performance Team membership, athletes receive racing stipends, attend nutrition classes and training, and have access to educational resources that enhance their overall team experience. We look forward to announcing the members of the 2024 PVA High Performance team in early February.
