Its an unfortunate fact but due to Injury, Trauma and more associated with Military Service We Veterans can often lose our Motivation and drive the old term “Drive On” becomes a thing of the past and as a result our activity level decreases as does our quality of life.Thats where Adaptive Cycling and RCPACC come in RCPACC strives to serve our veterans community by providing a support group to veterans that want to be more active through the Sport of Adaptive Cycling. We seek to provide Motivation to help Veterans become more physically active in spite of Disabilities that limit their mobility, we provide a brotherhood of Veterans who in many cases are dealing with the same issues that you may face as a Disabled Veteran
