iCan Bike helps individuals with disabilities discover how to independently ride a conventional two-wheel bicycle, creating a gateway of opportunity that helps them gain confidence in many other aspects of their lives.
In one week approximately 80% of participants learn to ride a two-wheel bicycle! Camp is back at Northview High School in Duluth and runs from June 15-19th.
Participants attend a 75-minute session each day for 5 days, where they learn to ride while accompanied and encouraged by volunteer spotters.
