The iCan Shine Bike Camp is an opportunity for
participants with disabilities to develop the skills and
confidence they need to ride a two-wheel bike for the first time.
We use specially adapted bikes which allow participants to
progressively build the coordination needed to ride
independently. A trained instructor starts the child on a bike
with wide rollers to help balancing and as they gain proficiency,
they move to more challenging models.
By the end of the week, most bikers are riding a standard
bicycle! Volunteers also jog alongside each bicycle, cheering and
supporting the rider throughout the week!
