"I'm so proud to be a part this program. In such a simple act we are facilitating a huge road block for young kids with disabilities. We are giving a big part of childhood to them to ride a bike is not only fun, it's great exercise, develops independence and empowers them to be a strong individual." - Mary, Volunteer
2018 Bike Camp
We are looking for 100+ enthusiastic volunteers for the 4th annual CycleAbility bike camp for special needs riders. Our volunteers create life-changing opportunities for our riders and typically walk away with lasting memories.

Summit Academy High School - Bluffdale
90-minute Daily Sessions

Session 4: 2:00pm-3:15pm

Our volunteer spotters help walk or run alongside our riders as they learn the mechanics of riding a two-wheeled bicycle. These volunteers primarily support our riders by keeping them safe and encouraging them to keep pedaling. We need between 80-100 volunteer spotters.
- Must be able to walk/run for 75 minutes with short breaks, typically around 3 miles.
- Must be able to provide physical, emotional, and motivational support to assigned rider
- Must be 15 years old or accompanied by a participating adult
- Asked to attend the same 90-minute session each day for all 5 days of camp to bring consistency to the rider's experience.
Our registration volunteers help check-in riders and welcome families and volunteers, offer encouragement during rider breaks, and assist with product sales and donations. These volunteers are asked to attend either AM or PM shifts for the week of camp, but may also commit to single days. We need up to 3 registration volunteers each day.
We are also looking for professional or semi-professional photography and videography support to capture the experience of camp.
