Only a few spots left for iCan Bike summer program

News

Instructors are teaching up to 30 individuals with disabilities how to ride a conventional bike.

Each year, the Topeka nonprofit organization Easterseals Capper Foundation hosts the 5-day long “iCan Bike’ camp.

The camp provides each camper with 75 minutes of instruction each day using a series of adapted bikes and techniques. The week-long effort results in the camp participants gaining a skill that allows them to ride with peers and gives them a new found sense of freedom, independence and confidence.

  • Have a disability.
  • Be at least eight years old.
