What is iCan Bike?
iCan Shine is a national charitable nonprofit organization Anne Carlsen has partnered with to create a 5-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 the program while attending for only 75 minutes each day!
A milestone in life that creates confidence, independence and friendship.
Riders attend the same 75-minute session each day for five consecutive days 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 individuals with disabilities how to ride at their own individual pace. iCan Bike riders need to be 8 years old or older and be able to walk without assistive devices and sidestep from side to side. The week is concluded with a touching and inspiring award ceremony!
