Ride to New Heights ~ Amazing program that teaches people with special needs how to ride a bike

 

ACU Bike(Steve Griffin | The Salt Lake Tribune) Ciera Troop, 8, is all smiles as she rides a bike by herself as forty people with special needs, ranging from age 7 to 35, learn to ride bicycles for the first time at a camp being conducted this week at Summit Academy High School in Bluffdale, Thursday, June 11, 2015. The camp is called Ride to New Heights, and the local sponsor is the non-profit, United Angels Foundation, which supports families and parents of children with special needs. They’ve brought in the national non-profit, I Can Shine that provide instructors and special bikes that help those with disabilities learn to balance and, ultimately, ride on their own.
