iCan Bike Camp
iCan Bike Camp is presented by Easterseals Crossroads in partnership with Rainbow’s End Optimist Club and Indy Parks - is a special needs bike camp for participants to learn how to ride a conventional bicycle. The program is directed by professionals from iCan Bike, but the leg work is accomplished by a large number of volunteers who act as "spotters" for the participants on the bikes. A "spotter" walks/ jogs/ runs alongside the participant and provides physical support and encouragement.
We need 2 volunteers per participant and that translates to a tremendous need for 80 spotters to fulfill the needs of the camp. Spotters are asked to sign up for the same 75-minute session each day for five days and are matched with the same rider each session. This allows the opportunity for the rider to develop trust in the spotter. Volunteers are required to attend orientation on Sunday, June 18, 2017.
Session times are as follows:
- Session 1 - 8:30 - 9:45
- Session 2 - 10:05 - 11:20
- Session 3 - 11:40 - 12:55
- Session 4 - 2:00 - 3:15
- Session 5 - 3:35 - 4:50
Requirements & Commitment: Must be at least 16; Orientation or Training; the same 75-min. session each day for all 5 days; Able to run at a steady pace for 75 min. w/ breaks
