Cycling was introduced as a Paralympic sport in Seoul in 1988 and is now practised in more than 40 countries. Depending on disability classification, riders use a bicycle, tricycle, tandem or handcycle. Para- cycling competitions includes road and track events for both men and women, with cyclists grouped together according to disability classification. The main world Para- cycling events include the Paralympic Games, World Championships, European Championships and World Cups. Within Australia, the National Championships and National Handcycle Series (NHS) are the major Para- cycling events.
