"My Bike" Program
Variety the Children's Charity

For a child with a disability, riding a bicycle is much more than a recreational activity. For Matt it's an opportunity to ride through the neighborhood alongside friends. For Connor it's a chance to feel independent, free, and carefree, when the day can present so many other challenges. For a child with a disability who struggles to skip, run, and even walk, an adaptive bicycle can be transformative.My_Bike_Variety_Pic1.jpg
