For kids learning to ride a bike, there comes that special moment when the training wheels finally come off. For kids with autism, it can be a little more difficult to get to that moment, but a local organization is helping to make it a little easier.

AutismUp held its sixth annual I-Can Bike Camp this week. Friday was the last day of the camp, which teaches kids with autism spectrum disorders and other disabilities how to ride a bike.

Each child spends 75 minutes a day working with a team of experts on specialized bike riding equipment. If you're interested in learning more about AutismUp's Bike Camp, click here.
