 iCan Shine Bike Camp

Hosted By Variety, The Children's Charity of Texas


Variety’s iCanShine Bike Camp is back!

We will be hosting our 2019 Bike Camp at Clay Madsen Recreation Center in Round Rock, TX from July 8th-12th.

Rider/ Volunteer registration is not currently open.

Please email ruthie.hanna@varietytexas.org if you are interested in receiving an email when rider/ volunteer registration is open.

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!”
