iCan Bike Summer Camp

iCan Bike Summer Camp

July 10 - 14, 2017

Bike camp for individuals with disabilities comes to Katy! 

HOW IT WORKS

From July 10 - 14, 2017, iCan Shine’s iCan Bike program will be in Katy, TX to teach 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.  Riders attend the same 75-minute session each day for five consecutive days (M – F) whereby they are physically assisted and encouraged by 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.

 

HOW TO REGISTER

ICan Bike riders are children ages 8 and up, teens and sometimes adults who have a diagnosed disability but able to walk without assistive devices and sidestep from side to side.

Parents, teachers and therapists describe our results as INCREDIBLE.  In 2016, by the end of the 5-day camp over 80% of riders learned to ride a conventional bike completely independently.  Success in learning to ride a bicycle is a major accomplishment.  Learning to ride builds confidence and an improved self-image.

The camp will take place at The British International School of Houston on N. Westgreen Rd. in Katy, TX.  The registration fee is $250.00.

AN INSPIRATION

Jake is a young man with Down syndrome. Jake’s parents tried many times to help him learn to ride a bike without much success.  After completing an iCan Bike program in Katy, TX, in 2015, he is still riding!  Many people like Jake never learn to ride, a skill that lasts a lifetime.

Imagine the joy that children and adults with disabilities experience when they, too, can ride with their peers and family, opening a world of new experiences!

...a milestone in life that creates confidence, independence & friendship
