Children and adults with special needs learn to ride a bicycle

The iCan Shine bike camp allows children and adults with disabilities to ride a modified bike around an indoor course. Each participant had a volunteer walk next to them as they rode their bike. The event was sponsored by the Pleasant Valley Recreation and Park District, Conejo Valley Recreation and Park District and iCan Shine. 40 people participated in the five-day camp.
