Activities: Each individual with a disability must bring a friend/buddy along. It can be a friend, a sibling, or a relative within the same age range. While your family member with a disability is learning to ride a bicycle, their friend/buddy will be participating in a unique program where he/she will learn about disabilities, strategies for fostering independence in their friend/family member with a disability, and how to react when faced with situations where others are not understanding of differences. If your family member's buddy is not available, his/her application will be placed on a waitlist. If we have space available at the completion of registration and can provide a buddy for your family member, we will contact you.
