Wheels are Spinning at Bike Camp 2011!

The Down Syndrome Association of Orange County, in collaboration with United Cerebral Palsy – OC, is thrilled to announce that Bike Camp 2011 has officially started in the gym at Soka University in Aliso Viejo.

There’s no delay on the first day!  The helmets (generously donated by Bell) are on and the wheels are spinning as 40 campers are beginning their exciting week at Bike Camp 2011.  Although the smiles are big, you can see the concentration in the eyes of the participants as they are learning to pedal, balance, turn and gain overall confidence so they can graduate to a conventional 2-wheel bike without training wheels by or before the end of the week.

With support from  Nikki Haukap and  Cory Bunner from Lose the Training Wheels, this group is well under way to an exciting new independence on 2 wheels. 

This is the fourth year that DSAOC and UCP-OC have collaborated to bring this anticipated program to Orange County.  With the help of more than 60 volunteers, and the expertise and special bike equipment from the Lose the Training Wheels staff, this will be another successful and memorable year for this program.
