Come join in on the biking fun! We are very excited to offer the iCan bike program in Eastern Idaho! This is a week long bike camp for people with special needs (8 years old and over) to learn how to ride a bike. At the camp there will be specially trained coaches to help the kids and adults with special needs learn how to ride a bike. The participants will start on adaptive bikes and transition to traditional two-wheeled bikes as they progress. The child or adult needs be under 220 lbs and have at least a 20” inseam. One parent/guardian/caretaker is asked to stay with their child/adult during the session. Each participant will come for 5 days in a row (July 15th-19th) during the same session each day. There are 5 sessions available (see the list below). Each session can only have 8 participants. Registration is first come first served. Once all spots are filled a waiting list will be started and you will be notified if a spot becomes available.
