Adaptive Bikes Program

About the Program

In 2019, the Indianapolis Cultural Trail and Pacers Bikeshare launched the Adaptive Bike program made possible thanks to a generous grant from the CIBA Foundation.  Adaptive bicycles are specifically designed to make it possible for people who aren’t comfortable riding a traditional two-wheeled bicycle or have mobility challenges that make it difficult to safely ride a two-wheeled bike.

As this is a pilot program and we invite your feedback! Please tell us what you think about how we can improve the program, our offerings, and your experience.


Adaptive Bike Reservations:
$10/hour (Bike fitting, helmet, and lock included!)

Adaptive bicycles are available for hourly rental, $10 + tax per hour. We encourage first time riders to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your reservation starting time for a bicycle fitting from our trained staff.

If you are an EveryBody Rides member, adaptive bicycles are available for $2 + tax hourly rental. Not sure if you qualify? Read more here or contact Joshua Tharp, jtharp@indyculturaltrail.org

Bike Types

4 different types of adaptive bicycles, including tricycles, are available to rent and ride by the hour. Our trained staff will provide a customized adaptive bicycle fitting before you ride and help select the right adaptive bicycle for your needs. We will do our best to make sure you have the right bike for you, it fits comfortably and you know how to safely ride it in downtown Indianapolis.

Our staff was trained by the professionals at Bluegrass Bicycle Co.
