“When I was younger, I really wanted to ride a two wheeler.  However, my parents kept telling me I wasn’t ready.  I tried a few times but always fell.  It was really frustrating.  I felt left out because my younger brother and friends could ride a bike but I couldn’t.  I gave up on learning to ride and was convinced that I would never be able to do it.

Then last spring, my Mom came across the iCan Bike Camp online and asked me if I was interested.  I immediately said yes!  When I got to the camp for the first time, I was nervous.  I was still not sure I would be able to ride a bike.  But once I got the training bike, I felt confident.  I had an amazing week at the camp!  My volunteers, Dom and Trish were very supportive of me and always gave positive reinforcement.

By the end of the week, I could ride a two wheeler independently.  I was so excited and so was my family.  Now I enjoy riding on the bike path at the park near my house.  I would recommend iCan Bike to anyone with a disability because it helped me to not only ride a bike but also believe in myself!”
