The iCan Bike program is designed to help children and youth with special needs achieve an important life milestone. Learn to ride a two-wheeled bike with the iCan Bike program.

We will focus on learning to balance on a bike with the goal of riding a two-wheeler independently. The program will use adapted bicycles to help participants gain the skills and confidence to gradually transition to a regular two wheeled bicycle. Participants will transition to their own bike during the week.

Riding a bike is a fun childhood activity with family and friends. TVCC offers a range of bike services tailored to the skills and abilities of your child/youth with special needs.
