“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!”
