Easterseals “iCan Bike”


Children, youth, and adults with disabilities can achieve a dream – learning to ride a bicycle – at the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center’s annual “iCan Bike” day camp June 7-11 at Evansville’s National Guard Armory. “iCan Bike” is designed for individuals age 8 and up with mild to moderate disabilities or disabling conditions. Participants receive individual assistance while progressing through a series of modified and adapted bicycles. Each “camper” attends for 75 minutes each day, with sessions scheduled between 8 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. or between 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. By the end of the week, the majority of participants achieve the goal of independently riding a regular two-wheeled bike with no training wheels or adaptations.
