We are short on bikes! Please donate your used bike or consider a donation of $300 so we can purchase a new bike to give to a kid.
Help us fulfil our goal of 2700 bikes given to very happy kids.
You Can Ride 2
The Learn to Ride program is an evidence-based cycling course designed to teach children with coordination challenges or other special needs, how to ride a two-wheeled bicycle without training wheels. Over the course of six sessions, children with no previous success at riding a bicycle, develop the skills and confidence to ride unassisted.
The program accepts children 8 years old and up regardless of diagnosis (or lack thereof), and has a very high success rate. A referral by a person familiar with motor development and of the program (e.g. school physio or occupational therapist) is required. Courses are also offered in several other communities across the province.
