iCan Bike Program

The iCan Bike program is gearing up for 2017! It will be:

June 25 - June 30, 2017
Armand Larive Middle School

The goal of iCan Bike is to teach individuals with disabilities to ride a conventional two-wheel bicycle and become lifelong independent riders.

iCan Bike™ uses a fleet of adapted bicycles, a specialized instructional program and a trained staff to teach individuals with disabilities how to ride a bike. Riders attend the same 75-minute session each day for five consecutive days (M-F) and are physically assisted and encouraged by two volunteer “spotters”. Over 80 percent of riders learn to ride a conventional bicycle independently by the end of camp.

Over the course of the five-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 awards ceremony!

iCan Bike riders are children ages 8 and up, teens and sometimes adults who have a diagnosed disability. To be eligible to enroll, riders must be at least eight years old, have a disability and be able to walk without an assistive device such as a walker or cane. Riders must be able to side-step quickly to both sides, and must have a minimum inseam measurement of 20 inches and weigh no more than 220 pounds. The camp is open to all individuals who meet registration requirements, regardless of where they live.

Parents, teachers and therapists describe camp results as incredible. Success in learning to ride a bicycle is a major accomplishment--it builds confidence and an improved self-image.

The iCan Bike program is organized by iCan Shine, a nonprofit organization. The 201 program is sponsored by the InterMountain ESD, the Hermiston School District and Hermiston Kiwanis.
