Kids and adults with special needs deserve the chance to learn and experience the benefits and joy of riding a bicycle.
We hold camps teaching those in need how to ride a bike!
A study conducted by the University of Michigan reported fewer than 20% of children with autism and 10% with Down’s syndrome learn to ride a bike. Learning to ride a bike will help them develop physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. The confidence and the joy gained is immeasurable!
Learning to bike ride is a rite of passage, but for those with special needs—each of which has a unique set of challenges to overcome like limited mobility, sensory difficulties, or communication/social deficiencies—the opportunity may not always present itself.
