iCan Bike 2019

 

Hosted by KidsAbility, iCan Bike helps Children and Youth with special needs to achieve an important life milestone: learning to ride a two-wheeled bike! Using special bicycles, participants gradually transition to a regular two-wheeled bicycle learning the skills and confidence that they need to ride independently.
