iCan Bike

The goal of iCan Bike is to teach children with disabilities to ride a conventional two-wheeled bicycle and become lifelong independent riders. Children will use adapted bicycles and receive 75 minutes of specialized instruction each day.

 
Your child should:
  • be able to walk independently without assistive devices;
  • be able to side step to both sides;
  • wear a properly fitted bike helmet;
  • not exceed the weight maximum of 220 pounds;
  • have a minimum inseam (inside leg length) of 20 inches
  • be able to follow basic instructions in a group setting;
  • be motivated to learn to ride a bike;
  • be able to attend all 5 days.
Please note: Parents must attend an orientation on July 3 from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. at Clarkson Community Centre, 2475 Truscott Dr., Mississauga. For the program itself, participants are assigned a 75-minute session which they must attend each day. (Upon acceptance to the program, clients will indicate their top three session preferences.)

Did you know?

Did you know that having your child seated on a low stool, bench or step (versus on the floor), can facilitate the learning of dressing skills?  By doing this you are increasing his or her postural stability and visual view of his or her hands.
