ICan Bike camp

The iCan Bike Camp teaches kids with disabilities how to ride a 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 on specialized equipment. Over the course of the 5 day camp, the specialized bike is adjusted to gradually introduce more instability and to help challenge the riders at their own pace.

Participant Qualifications:
* Ages 8 and up with diagnosed disability, able to walk without assistive devices, and sidestep from side to side
*Weigh less than 220 pounds
*Have a minimum 20-inch inseam
*Have a cruiser-style bike by the 3rd day of camp. Bike is needed for rider to transition from the iCan Bike adapted bike to their personal bike to ride at home!
