Bike Camp Teaches Disabled How To Ride

A special camp called "I Can Bike" spent two weeks in Fresno teaching disabled kids and adults how to ride a bike.
A special camp called "I Can Bike" has been in the Valley teaching disabled kids and adults how to ride a bike. 

The program has specialized 2-wheeled bikes that allows participants to be successful almost immediately. The camp has a life changing impact.

"Unbelievable," says camp director Karen Ray, "It will allow them to have more independence more freedom in their lives it'll build their confidence it's an amazing program and the smiles on their face and the joy is unbelievable when they get up on those two wheels."

By the time camp ends on July 25th most participants will be able to ride on their own. It gives them a different mode of transportation besides the bus and introduces more fun into their daily lives. 


"It allows them to not have to rely on family or a friend or even public transportation to get to their work or go get groceries or go get ice cream if they want to," says Katie Cook, another camp director. 

The camp was held at Northwest Church in Clovis July 14 - 18 and Fresno City College July 21 - 25. 

This is the third year the camp has been in the area. This year they had to expand to a two week program because it has been so popular.
