Background of Fitability
Fitability was established in 2001-02 by members of Females in Training (FIT) using funds from an ACT government grant for women only.
In 2015 Fitability enhanced a previously established partnership with Pedal Power ACT to become a Pedal Power sub-committee. This allowed Fitability to further expand its program and offer tandem cycling to vision impaired women and men in the Canberra region and also support riding opportunities for people with other disabilities.
The pool of people supporting Fitability includes volunteer committee members, tandem pilots and organisational support volunteers. Fitability continues to operate primarily through fundraising, donations and Government grants.
