Tavian Bryant – Redlands Bicycle Classic 2019

I had a lot of fun racing in the Redlands Bicycle Classic. It’s an event I look forward to every year. I’ve competed in this event for three years in a row. This event forces me to bring my best every year because the competition is always fierce. A few of the courses changed this year, and day 1 was a very challenging course with a steep hill climb to the finish. The day 2 course was familiar [...]

Five Tips for Flying with your Handcycle

Always travel with a doorstop in your carry on bag. When lugging a handcycle around an airport or hotel, I don’t know how many times I’ve found myself needing to prop a door open so I can get myself and my handcycle through it.  A doorstop is a cheap and simple solution to this common problem.

Traveling by Plane to Races in a Wheelchair

Traveling by plane to bike races in a wheelchair is definitely not an easy task in itself. Throw a 90 pound bike box in the mix and it’s almost impossible to do by myself. I did say almost. I have learned tricks throughout my travels as a Team PossAbilities athlete to get by without help. These tricks are not easy, nor are they fun but I will do what I have to do to get to race. The first [...]

Season Beginnings End

The start of a new season is always exciting. For me it’s the thrill of getting back to racing in a group of cyclists within inches of one another. This is what I enjoy the most about racing. At the start of a new season that excitement begins to brew and with that excitement for many including me comes a bit of anxiety. Going into a new season is a little daunting from certain aspects. Cyclists need to work [...]
