What is iCan Bike Camp?
A program that teaches individuals with disabilities how to ride a conventional bike and become a lifelong independent rider!
Success in learning to ride a bicycle is a major accomplishment for attendees and builds confidence and an improved self-image. Nothing is more inspiring than seeing a group of bike camp participants ride a conventional bike completely independently. By the end of the five day camp over 80 percent of riders learn to ride their bikes completely independently.
Cost per rider for each week long session is $250.00.
Note: If you are currently receiving the waiver, this program may qualify for funding. Contact your county worker for more information.
