iCan Bike – East Grand Forks

July 16 @ 12:00 am - July 20 @ 12:00 am

$100

Lose the training wheels! You can volunteer to help individuals with special needs learn how to ride a bike. Approximately 80% of the individuals who participate in our iCan Bike programs ride a two-wheel bicycle independently by the end of our five-day programs.

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!
