Project Details
Working with a rider at iCan Bike Lincroft 2015

Volunteer for iCan Bike, a program that teaches individuals with disabilities to independently ride a conventional two wheel bicycle over the course of five days. Volunteers, aged 15 or older serve as spotters for the riders, walking/light jogging alongside their camper. They help the rider to learn, keep their balance, steer, and most of all offer encouragement and motivation. The same two spotters work with the same child all week, so they truly share in the pride and joy of their success at the end of the week!! From increasing self esteem, to more inclusion in the community, to more physical fitness, to independent transportation, you will be helping these individuals in countless ways!
