Get ready to ride with the Hoboken Bike Camp for Disabled Youths

The Hoboken Family Alliance will host the 4th Annual Hoboken Bike Camp starting July 7  to teach individuals with disabilities to ride a two-wheel bicycle independently. This life-changing program fosters inclusion, acceptance and independence, two wheels at a time.

Operated in conjunction with iCanBike, a national, not-for-profit organization that has conducted hundreds of camps over the past decade, and the City of Hoboken, the camp uses a proven protocol with an 80% success rate. Because of specially adapted bikes that use a roller instead of a rear wheel, participants become more balanced and comfortable in an accelerated time period. An on-site bike technician and floor supervisor help advance throughout a series of levels and within five days they are riding independently.

Hoboken was the first city in New Jersey to host a camp in 2012 and four other N.J. cities have since followed. The camp is open to cognitively disabled individuals, 8-years-old and older and runs July 7– July 11 at the Hoboken High School. To register a participant go toBike Camp Registration.

The camp brings together the community through special events and fundraising but primarily through the volunteer efforts of more than 50 individuals who are the foundation for helping participants achieve success in the camp.

The Hoboken Family Alliance is a registered 501 (3) (c) organization that was founded more than 10 years ago and supports Hoboken families and the community. The HFA is hosting the program with support from Platninum Sponsors CarePoint Health and the City of Hoboken; Gold Sponsor Quidsi and support from Ben & Jerry’s, Coca-Cola, the Hoboken Harriers Running Club, Milrose and WPLJ – 95.5 FM.
