Cycling at the 2012 Summer Paralympics consisted of 50 events in two main disciplines, track cycling and road cycling. Track cycling was held in London Velopark from 30 August to 2 September, and road cycling took place at Brands Hatch from September 5 to September 8.[1]

Classification[edit]

Cyclists are given a classification depending on the type and extent of their disability. The classification system allows cyclists to compete against others with a similar level of function. The class number indicates the severity of impairment with "1" being most impaired.

Cycling classes are:[2]

  • B: Blind and visually impaired cyclists use a Tandem bicycle with a sighted pilot on the front - both athletes are awarded medals
  • H 1–4: Cyclists with an impairment that affects their legs use a handcycle
  • T 1–2: Cyclists with an impairment that affects their balance use a tricycle
  • C 1-5: Cyclists with an impairment that affects their legs, arms and/or trunk but are capable of using a standard bicycle

Events[edit]

For each of the events below, medals are contested for one or more of the above classifications.
