iCan Bike Camp
March 19, 2018 @ 8:00 am - March 23, 2018 @ 5:00 pm UTC-5
From March 19th -23rd 2018 iCan Shine’s iCan Bike program will be at Saint Andrews School, Boca Raton Fl to teach local individuals with disabilities how to ride a conventional bike and become a lifelong independent rider!
iCan Bike uses a fleet of adapted bicycles, a specialized instructional program and a trained staff to teach individuals with disabilities how to ride a bike. Each rider attends the same 75-minute session each day for five consecutive days (M – F) whereby they are physically assisted and encouraged by the same two volunteer “spotters”.
Over the course of the 5-day camp the adapted bike is adjusted to gradually introduce more instability in an effort to challenge riders at their own individual pace. The week is concluded with a touching and inspiring award ceremony!
