Leisure Services for Individuals with Disabilities: iCan Shine Program

iCan Shine Bike Camp

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!

Instructional classes designed to help participants learn to ride bikes independently.
