Alcorn Adaptive Bike and Mobility

Jerry Alcorn is the founder and creator of Alcorn Adaptive. His statement for his company is “Making a difference in the COMMUNITY not just for SHOW”. The following is his story;

“After being paralyzed in 2014, my entire life changed. I navigated this new life by adapting. I had to find new ways to stay active & exercise.  I was introduced to my first ride on a hand-cycle and the expansive world of cycling.

Being good with my hands & my mechanics’ background became valuable assets as I now create, service, repair, & customize bikes, trikes, and cycles of all shapes and sizes for people all over Southern California (even the Snowbirds).”
