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!

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!
