We are in partnership with iCan Shine, an international non-profit, to provide the Denver metro area access to their iCan Bike camp. The camp teaches people with disabilities how to ride a conventional two-wheeled bicycle, in one week – 75 minutes a day, for 5 days.
Our mission is to provide unique learning opportunities in recreational activities for people with disabilities. Each person’s abilities are embraced and nurtured to foster an environment where everyone can shine!
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 rider 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 adapted bicycles, a specialized instructional program, and trained staff to enable individuals with disabilities to learn to ride a conventional two-wheel bicycle.
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 riders’ balance 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.
The camp only comes once a year to this area and is open to a maximum of 30 riders, so don’t delay in submitting your registration.
Camp has come and gone for 2019, but we are already planning for 2020. We are anticipating it to be July 6 – 10, 2020 and at the same location, but that is still to be confirmed.
