Description: Lose the Training Wheels

The 6th Annual Lose the Training Wheels bike camp will be held July 8-12, 2013 at the Rochester Institute of Technology. This camp will teach individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other disabilities, how to ride a conventional bike without training wheels. Lose the Training Wheels provide specialized bicycle riding equipment, as well as, a team of experts. Each participant attends one 75-minute session per day for five consecutive days. There will be 1-2 volunteers assisting the trainers with each child. We are able to change the lives of these children and teens by teaching them a skill that builds self-confidence, provides inclusion with their peers, and gives them a lifetime of fun and exercise!


In order to participate, the person must meet the following requirements:

•Be at least 8 years old and have a disability
•Ambulatory without an assistive device
•Able to side step quickly to both sides
•Able to wear a properly fitted bike helmet
