June 5-9, 2023
"iCan Bike", formerly "Lose the Training Wheels", is a unique 5-day summer program experience to give individuals with disabilities the self-confidence to learn to ride a two-wheel bicycle. Using specialized equipment, coaching, and encouragement, participants will "lose the training wheels!" For individuals with disabilities, learning to ride a bicycle has many benefits, such as increased confidence and self-esteem, inclusion with peers, independent transportation, and most important, increased quality of life through recreation.
The registration packet for participants is available here. Please mail the completed packet along with payment to: Intake, Capper Foundation, 3500 SW 10th Ave. Topeka, KS 66604 or email Intake@capper.org. For more information, contact our Intake Department or 785-272-4060.

iCan Bike Finale
For twelve years, Capper Foundation has hosted the adaptive recreation program, iCan Bike, to train children and adults with disabilities to ride a two-wheeled bicycle in a week.
So what is the next step to accompany their new independence?
The Finale is designed in partnership with local bike enthusiasts and instructors, to teach bicycle safety practices so new riders can ride with their family and friends on public sidewalks and streets. The event, held at Gage Park, includes safe riding instruction and techniques and allows the new riders to practice riding along with their family on designated and monitored routes in the park.
Each new rider must bring their own bicycle/helmet and an adult capable of running or riding with them in order to participate. Capper Foundation will not be providing personal route buddies.
Lunch and games will also be provided.
