iCan Bike 2017 Summer Program
NLSD 122 is pleased to be hosting the iCan Bike Summer Program June 12th- June 16th, 2017!
The goal of iCan Bike is to teach individuals with disabilities to ride a conventional two-wheel bicycle and become lifelong independent riders. This achievement, in turn, creates a gateway of opportunity, helping them gain assurance and self-reliance in many other aspects of their lives.

NLSD 122 is seeking individuals who are interested in playing an important part in helping our special riders learn to ride a two-wheel bicycle independently.
Volunteers will be responsible for walking/jogging/running alongside a rider as they are learning to ride a bike during a 75-minute session (with short breaks) for 5 days Monday through Friday (June 12th through June 16th).
We ask volunteers to commit to attending all 5 days of camp for the session(s) you select. In addition, please plan to attend our 45-minute orientation on Sunday, June 11th at 4:00pm to learn about how the iCan Bike program operates, what to expect each day, and to receive training tips on spotting your assigned rider.
NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE WITH PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES NECESSARY
