|Iowa State students help people with disabilities get up on two wheels|
Riding a bicycle can increase a person’s self esteem and confidence.
It can improve physical fitness, mental health, and overall quality of life. It can also spur positive changes in family dynamics, create opportunities for inclusion, and provide a person with an independent means of transportation.
But people with special needs can face challenges in mastering this skill.
That’s why four Iowa State University kinesiology students and recent graduates — Katie Cook, Ciara McCarty, Jeff Robson, and Jenna Ham — are bringing the national iCan Bike camp to Ames next week. It’s the first of its kind in Iowa. The five-day camp teaches people with disabilities to ride a conventional two-wheel bicycle.
