25 May Variety’s iCan Bike Camp
Congratulations to all 80 of our riders on completing their week of learning how to ride a 2-wheel bike last month! We hope all the kids enjoy the rest of their summer riding their bikes and practising their new skills with friends and family.
Variety’s iCan Bike camp wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing help of iCan Shine, all our sponsors, donors and volunteers!

iCan Bike camp teaches children ages 8 and up living with a disability (autism, developmental delays, Down Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy) how to ride a 2-wheel bike independently. Over the course of camp riders transition from specialized equipment to a 2-wheel coaster bike as they learn the skills needed to balance and steer a bike on their own. Over the course of the camp, 80 individuals will learn the amazing skill of independently riding a bike.
