I am 9 years old and have been working really hard to be able to do more active activities with my Mom over the last year. My mom loves to ride her bike and teach me about loving the outdoors, and we create some of our best cherished memories in those spaces. I have a lot of trouble with my vision and need special glasses to help me see and calculate my stops and turns with my depth perception. I am making big progress riding my bike with my training wheels for extra stability, but still feel afraid at times to practice riding or venture on new trails that my mom really loves. With the right support, I know I can do anything, and I'm hopeful that you can help me and my Mom strengthen our love for riding bikes together.
Olena is riding a child size bike with training wheels. We have been practicing riding her bike for about 6 months and typically will do rides around her neighborhood and some easier bike trials with less hills and turns. We are practicing on novel trails at least once a week to strengthen her confidence in riding in unfamiliar and more challenging terrain. We typically ride for 15 minutes up to 30 minutes consistently with breaks as needed.
At Adaptive Sports Connection we want every child who could benefit from an adaptive bike to be able to make their dream of owning one come true. That is why we come alongside families to help them raise the funds they need.
