Cycling is an exciting sport that tones muscles and strengthens the cardiovascular system. It is also an enjoyable recreational activity that offers fun and relaxation and provides an inexpensive form of transportation. Cycling was inaugurated at the 1987 Special Olympics World Games while it was still considered a demonstration sport. Twenty-one athletes participated and proved their skill and ability. One year later, cycling was adopted as an official Special Olympics sport. Today, approximately 5,285 athletes from 59 Special Olympics Programs around the globe participate in cycling. Events offered range from the 500M Time Trial to 10K Time Trials to the 5K Road Race to the 40K Road Race.
