Ideate Participates in Another Successful Bike First!

Bike First! Camp, a program of Northwest Down Syndrome Association (NWDSA), has a powerful impact on all who participate – from volunteers and parents, to those learning to ride a bike for the very first time. This is why Ideate, Inc. is once again excited to have sponsored this important annual event.

The camp took place in north Portland from June 20 – 24th, 2016 and provided an opportunity for those with varying abilities to hop on a bike and build confidence riding. Bike First! uses adaptive technology to help teach balance and boost esteem on bicycles with a 97% success rate, getting an overwhelming majority of campers up and away on two wheels.

NWDSA says “Biking is more than just exercise and transportation: it’s a social activity of connection, a childhood rite of passage and a first taste of independence. This unique approach has enabled thousands of people, with a myriad of disabilities, to become independent bicycle riders.

Ideate, Inc. believes strongly in being a part of the local community and supporting programs like Bike First! is one way in which we are proud to participate.
