Help Individuals with Disabilities Lose the Training Wheels.

iCan Shine is a national charitable nonprofit organization the Anne Carlsen Center has partnered up with to create a five-day program to assist riders with disabilities learn how to bike.

Approximately 80% of the people who participate in our iCan Bike program ride a two-wheel bicycle independently (at least 75 feet with no assistance) by the end of our five-day program while attending for only 75 minutes each day!

In 2015, We Helped Individuals in Your Community Experience the Thrill of Riding Solo.

Research shows that over 80% of people with Autism and 90% of people with Down syndrome never experience riding a conventional bike during their lifetime.
Defying these odds is why we exist!

What is iCan Bike?

iCan Shine is a national charitable nonprofit organization the Anne Carlsen Center has partnered up with to create a five-day program to assist riders with disabilities learn how to bike.

Approximately 80% of the people who participate in our iCan Bike program ride a two-wheel bicycle independently (at least 75 feet with no assistance) by the end of our five-day program while attending for only 75 minutes each day!

A Milestone in Life that Creates Confidence, Independence and Friendship.

iCan Bike Camps will be hosted in a variety of locations around North Dakota this summer, to teach individuals with disabilities how to ride a conventional two wheel 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. The week is concluded with a touching and inspiring award ceremony!

Our Riders are Believers

“Above and beyond. Excellent communication with bikers and parents. Well exceeded our expectations”
“Cannot say enough wonderful things about the staff. They also work great together. Love this program.”
“The day he rode on his own was truly wonderful. The theme from Rocky (“Gonna Fly Now”) came over the loudspeaker and he was doing it. I get choked up thinking about it even now. He had a huge smile on his face.”
“This week was by far one of the most amazing, emotionally changing week for our son and ourselves. The program is unbelievable! Recommend it to everyone who could benefit! Thank you so much.”
