Event description

Description

The I Can Bike Program teaches kids and adults with disabilities how to ride a two-wheeled bike. Riders attend a 75-minute session each day for five consecutive days (Monday – Friday). Riders are physically assisted and encouraged by two volunteer spotters and taught by trained professionals. Over the course of camp, an adapted bike is adjusted to gradually introduce more instability and to help challenge the riders at their own pace. Eighty percent of riders can ride independently by the end of the week! See videos and more information on the iCan Bike website, www.icanshine.org.
