The 7th Annual iCan Bike Camp will be held July 13-17, 2015 at the Rochester Institute of Technology. This camp will teach individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other disabilities, how to ride a conventional bike without training wheels. Lose the Training Wheels provide specialized bicycle riding equipment, as well as, a team of experts. Each participant attends one 75-minute session per day for five consecutive days. There will be 1-2 volunteers assisting the trainers with each child. We are able to change the lives of these children and teens by teaching them a skill that builds self-confidence, provides inclusion with their peers, and gives them a lifetime of fun and exercise!
