The betterment of Injured Service Members lives, recovery, physical health, mental health and everyday situations by giving them a tool that works.

Simply by having the service available to qualifying service members through word of mouth through the Wounded, Ill and Injured service member community.

Scott Moro our founder has been working with the injured Military community since 2007, creating adapted bicycles and working together with other non-profits creating events to assist with the mental and physical rehab of Wounded, Ill and Injured Service Members all over the world. Along with our the Board of Directors who themselves are recipients of these types of services The Adaptive Cycling Foundation is ready and capable to serve as necessary.

Simply by building just one bike we are doing what we are here for and helping, so our progress indicators are each bike we supply, bike we adapt and each invention we design and manufacture.
