iCan Bike Hosts

Our hosts include nonprofit organizations, local governments, advocacy groups and proactive parents that step-up to organize a local iCan Bike program. This usually starts with a motivated individual who has experienced our bike program first-hand and wants to make it a reality for people with disabilities in their area.

 

What Hosts Should Expect

Hosting a successful iCan Bike program involves a good deal of effort, however, the feedback and gratitude you will receive from riders, families and volunteers will make it worth all your hard work. Being an iCan Bike host may be the toughest job you’ve ever loved!

We offer two types of iCan Bike programs.  Our iCan Bike Camp is the most common (over 90% of our iCan Bike programs) and is described below.  Additionally, we offer an iCan Bike After School Program (ASP) specially designed for school district and private school hosts interested in engaging and empowering the typically-developing peer students of the riders as the volunteer spotters.

iCan Bike Camp Hosts are responsible for:

  • Securing a local suitable facility, preferably climate-controlled, with a minimum indoor riding area of 6,800 square feet in which to conduct our bike program Monday through Friday during normal business hours
  • Allowing access to an equivalently sized nearby outdoor riding area, relatively flat and free of hazardous obstacles, for the days of Wednesday through Friday only
  • Allowing access to the facility for two hours on the Sunday afternoon/evening before camp (equipment set-up and parent and volunteer orientation)
  • Paying a fixed program fee of $8,450 to iCan Shine for between 4 and 8 riders during each of the daily 75-minute sessions ($8,250 if deposit received by November 1st)
  • Providing lodging for two iCan Bike staff for the week (2 hotel rooms for 7 nights)
  • Establishing a rider registration fee to charge and collect from families (principally used to fund the above mentioned program fee – rider registration fees generally range from $150 to $250 per rider)
  • Recruiting and registering local riders and volunteer spotters (2 spotters per rider)
  • Planning and administering the daily check-in process, providing name-tags, t-shirts and recognition awards to riders and volunteers

Getting up to speed on becoming an iCan Bike Camp Host:

The most efficient way to understand what is involved in being an iCan Bike Camp host is to:

  • Download and read our Bike Camp Host Overview
  • View the short, professionally produced TV News Videos of our iCan Bike program on our Home Page
  • Read our Host Testimonials to learn what our iCan Bike hosts have to say about our program
  • Email us at info@icanshine.org to set up a convenient day and time to discuss more details over the phone

Difference between an iCan Bike Camp and After School Program (ASP):

The iCan Bike Camp differs from an ASP to the extent that an ASP:

  • utilizes the typically-developing peer students of the riders as volunteer spotters;
  • includes an educational daily one hour team-building and diversification training component for the volunteer spotters;
  • includes one or two 75-minute session(s) per day (vs. five 75-minute sessions per day in a Camp) serving between 4 and 8 riders per session depending on square footage of the riding area;
  • occurs during the school year in the afternoon after school ends; and
  • costs $4,200 for one session or $5,050 for two sessions (vs. $8,450 for a Camp), plus lodging for two iCan Bike staff for the week (2 hotel rooms for 7 nights).

If interested in hosting an iCan Bike ASP please start by reading the comprehensive Bike ASP Host Overview.


Host Documents

In order to make iCan Bike programs efficient and successful, we have developed standardized planning, administrative, marketing, registration and other informational documents. Our goal in doing this is to make hosting one of our iCan Bike programs as stress-free and seamless as possible.

Over the years, we have accumulated a number of best practices on hosting efficient and successful iCan Bike programs and have fine-tuned this process to be reflected in the documentation below readily available to all hosts.  As an iCan Bike program host, you will benefit from our many years of determining what works best and therefore avoid having to re-invent the process.

Finally, we work especially close with our new ‘rookie’ hosts to ensure they are completely up to speed and fully supported in the endeavor to plan their first bike program.  After hosting their first bike program, our hosts find that hosting subsequent bike programs becomes substantially easier.
