Kids and adults with developmental disabilities are invited to learn to ride a bike this summer! Riders attend one 75-minute session each day for five consecutive days, Monday – Friday. Riders are assisted and encouraged by two volunteer spotters and taught by trained professionals. Over the course of camp, an adapted bike is adjusted to gradually introduce more instability and to help challenge the riders at their own pace. There are many spots available for riders, who can choose from one of five sessions to attend throughout the week.  Sessions begin at 8:30, 10:05,11:40, 2:05, and 3:40.  Click here to register.
