SUSSEX COUNTY, NJ – It is not easy to ride a bike if you have not been taught how. This is especially true of people with disabilities.
A volunteer program called iCan Bike seeks to address that need. For the first time in Sussex County volunteers will be paired with riders to teach this skill.
Volunteers and riders are wanted for the event to be held at High Point Regional High School, August 5 through 9. Sparta resident and avid cycler Mitch Morrison is hosting this event.
According to the organization I Can Bike- Sussex, N , “research shows more than 80 percent of people with Autism and 90 percent of people with Downs Syndrome never experience this thrill.”
Thorlabs is sponsoring this event.
