Children and adults with disabilities can learn to ride a regular two-wheeled bicycle at Easterseals "iCan Bike" day camp! The 2021 "bike camp" will be June 7-11 at Evansville's National Guard Armory. Registration deadline is April 19 and spots are limited.
Participants must be at least 8 years old and must have some type of disabling condition. "Day campers" will progress through a series of adapted bikes toward their goal of riding a regular two-wheeler with no adaptations by the end of the week.
Cost is $170 per person, and financial assistance is available thanks to generous donors! Registration includes the five-day "bike camp", an "iCan Bike" t-shirt, and bicycle safety helmet. Each participant attends for 75 minutes daily during a specific time frame. (The 75-minute sessions are scheduled in advance and will be held between 8:00am and 12:30pm OR between 1:00pm and 4:30pm.)

Volunteers are needed to provide individual assistance for participants. Volunteers must be at least 15 years old, have the ability to run beside a child on a bike, and be available each day, June 7-11, during specific session times. This is a great opportunity for service hours for high school and college students!

Special thanks to generous support from Bicycle Club of Evansville, Cycling Solutions, John Oldenburg Bike Fund, Mother Bear Charitable Foundation, and other donors.
