Lose The Training Wheels Bike Camp
A camp that teaches children with special needs to ride a bike!
Lose The Training WheelsTM is a nonprofit organization that teaches individuals with special needs to ride a conventional two-wheeled bicycle and become lifelong independent riders. This achievement helps individuals with special needs gain assurance and self-reliance in many other aspects of their lives.

With 75 minutes of instruction over five days, approximately 85 percent of campers learn to ride a conventional bicycle independently!
