Becoming a Rider

Becoming a rider in ATP is a life-altering ride. For many, it may start off as a means to discover the coastal belt surrounding the island of Sri Lanka, in a way you never imagined. For others, it might be a fun way to do something good with like-minded individuals and your friends. But at the heart of this is one cause, and that is Cerebral Palsy, and giving the 40,000+ children affected with this disorder, a way to integrate into society by use of a pediatric wheelchair specifically designed for this purpose.

To become a rider, you must have adequate training and preparation for long distance cycling, a suitable road and mountain bike (could be rented), a clean bill of health and personal insurance cover,

So get ready to take on ATP by filling out the registration form and you will be one step away from changing a life forever.


Cerebral palsy is the term used for a group of non-progressive disorders of movement and posture caused by damage to motor control centers of the brain, and is Sri Lanka’s most common childhood disability, with an estimated 40,000 children with Cerebral Palsy.

Many of these children go through life without the means to integrate into society. However, with a specialized wheelchair, integration through enhanced mobility is possible.

A wheelchair costs $100 or LKR 14,000. You can donate to this cause through a variety of means.
