We are in partnership with the international non-profit organization, iCan Shine, to bring the Denver metro area their unique iCan Bike program. The camp teaches people with intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities how to ride conventional two-wheeled bicycles, in one week – 75 minutes a day, for 5 days.
Each person’s abilities are embraced and nurtured in a safe and fun-loving, yet challenging and rewarding environment.
Success in learning to ride a bicycle is a major milestone in anyone’s life. When learning has been a struggle, the accomplishment, and its impact is much greater. We observe that learning to ride a bicycle infuses the athlete with confidence and an improved self-image that has a positive ripple effect on many other aspects of their lives.
About the Camp
iCan Bike uses adaptive bicycles, a specialized instructional program, and trained staff to enable individuals with disabilities to learn to ride a conventional two-wheeled bicycle. Watch the video above to get insight into this remarkable experience.
Riders attend one 75 minute session each day for five consecutive days where they learn to ride while accompanied and encouraged by volunteer spotters. Over the course of the week, we continually adjust the bikes’ stability in an effort to challenge the riders’ balance, coordination, and muscle memory as they gradually discover the skill and joy of riding.
Riders are children, teens, and adults who have a disability and are able to side-step and walk without assistive devices. See our FAQ page for details on who can participate, session times, etc.
Each camp has limited capacity, so don’t delay in submitting your registration.
