iCan Bike Program
More than 90 iCan Bike programs in 32 States and 2 Provinces in Canada serve nearly 2,500 individuals with disabilities.
The program has a lot of success helping individuals with disabilities accomplish riding a bicycle.
The week begins with spotters running along children on modified bicycles and then progresses to childen riding independently on typical bicycles.
Approximately 80% of the individuals who participate in iCan Bike programs ride a two-wheel bicycle independently by the end of the five-day programs. The remaining 20% of these individuals make tremendous progress towards this goal and leave the programs accompanied by parents and/or siblings trained as 'spotters' to pick up where the program leaves off.
