ORANGE COUNTY BIKE CAMP is a bike training program sponsored by the Down Syndrome Association of OC and United Cerebral Palsy-OC. The camp takes place at Soka University in Aliso Viejo from Aug. 4-8.
- HOW: Using specialized bikes and a proven technique, we help individuals with special needs learn to ride bikes. The bikers attend a daily 75-minute training session and use specialized bikes to help overcome their fear of falling, learn to balance, steer and brake.
- WHAT YOU'LL DO: Be a spotter. Volunteers work in pairs and will have a 1:1 relationship wiht each bike rider.
- WHO YOU'LL BE: An enthusiastic, positive, encouraging volunteer who is 16 or older. Not quite 16? We can pair you up with someone 21.
- HOW TO VOLUNTEER: Download the application here. You'll need to attend a 1.5 hour orientation on SUNDAY, AUG. 3rd, where you'll learn how to be a spotter and learn how the training curriculum works.
- SESSION TIMES:
You can volunteer for one or more sessions. You will be walkking or jogging along with the rider in the beautiful AIR CONDITIONED Soka University Gym until your rider is two-wheeling on a regular bike, and then you get to go outside and ride in the parking lot to practice.
