Variety’s iCanShine Bike Camp !
Variety’s iCan Shine Bike Camp 2019 was a wonderful event. We’re so appreciative of the riders, families, volunteers, sponsors and partners who came together to make Bike Camp happen!
This year we are very grateful for our partner organizations and corporate sponsors who are helping us bring iCanShine Bike Camp to our community: Round Rock Parks & Recreation, The Down Syndrome Association of Central Texas (DSACT), The Autism Society of Texas (AST) & EVO Entertainment.
From iCanShine’s website:
“Our organization began in 2007. Since then, we have successfully taught approximately 20,000 people with disabilities to ride a conventional two-wheel bicycle. The impact of learning to ride a bicycle independently, and our high level of success in helping people with disabilities accomplish this feat, continues to drive demand for our iCan Bike program.
Approximately 80% of the people who participate in our iCan Bike program learn to ride a conventional two-wheel bicycle independently (at least 75 feet with no assistance) by the end of our five-day program while attending for only 75 minutes each day! The remaining 20% make tremendous progress towards this goal and leave our programs accompanied by family members trained as ‘spotters’ to pick up at home where we leave off!”
