While most kids want to be able to ride a bicycle, it’s not always easy for them to learn. But thanks to a camp in Harford County, Maryland, now kids with disabilities are learning how to ride a bike, too.
The iCan Ride Bike Camp is a program that teaches people with physical and intellectual challenges how to ride a bike. “The idea came from the parents,” explains Rachel Harbin, the disability coordinator with Harford County. “This is something we’ve heard parents say that they’ve wanted riders to participate with their friends and on family bike rides.”
Over the course of a week, riders attend 75-minute long sessions every day using specially adapted bikes and trained staff helps them progress into bicycle riders. And no matter what their limitations are, they’re getting to have that experience kids love.
