Our RideON program features Strider bikes. We work with Strider and local therapists so your children can feel the freedom of riding a bike with friends and family.
Strider Balance Bikes break down the overwhelming task of learning how to ride a bike. Striders are low to the ground so your child’s feet can always touch the ground – they can move and stop the bike with their feet like a scooter.
Your child will learn balance, control of speed, turning, and braking. Your child may continue to enjoy a glide bike. Others may take those skills to a two wheeler with pedals. With the Strider Balance Bikes, we have served children with Down syndrome, autism, low muscle tone, poor balance, arthrogryposis, and cerebral palsy – helping them to enjoy all the benefits of cycling.
RideOn camps provide children ages 3 – 16 with a solid foundation to learn to ride. There is no cost to this program.
