Welcome to Adelante on Wheels
Adelante on Wheels is an Association for paracycling, also called adapted cycling. The sport has four disciplines: tandem riding, tricycling, cycling and handbiking. Adelante on Wheels wants parasporters with a great diversity of physical limitations, both top athletes as recreational riders, to continue to challenge themselves and guide them in finding and pushing their own physical and mental limits. Our motto is ' bring out the best in yourself '.
Enjoying sports is very important, as well as meeting others with disabilities and promoting an active lifestyle to improve health. The association was founded on January 1, 2017 and is still evolving.
Wanted: trainer for hand bike association Adelante on Wheels
Adelante on Wheels (AoW) is a small but active handbike association based in South Limburg with a membership from the Euregion to North Brabant.
The association offers everyone with a disability the opportunity to practice cycling in a responsible manner and at every level.
In this way, AoW contributes to contact with fellow sufferers, participation and autonomy in society, the promotion of an active lifestyle and the shifting of physical and mental boundaries.
In addition to touring and performance tours and training, the association organizes leading competitions at NHC level. The association also tries regularly to connect with able-bodied competitions or performance tours in order to establish a connection between able-bodied and disabled athletes.
The level of the members of AoW varies from recreational to paralympic. This means that, in addition to a different handicap, each athlete has his or her own goals. Despite this, training is often done together at central locations such as the Tom Dumoulin track in Sittard.
The association is looking for a trainer who, except for members with a Paralympic level:
• can set up targeted personal training programs
• wants to supervise them, periodically or otherwise
• as well as provide group training
Naturally, the association can provide a first introduction to hand biking as well as a number of relevant contacts in the network and sponsors such as the rehabilitation center Adelante.
For more information, please contact the president of the association mr. Jeroen van der Eerden (tel .: 0646745610)
