Power2Pedal

Power2Pedal is an 8 week bike riding program for kids & teens with autism

Power2Pedal is a fun and welcoming program, delivered in a safe environment where kids and teens with autism will learn and develop their bike riding skills. This program will also support people to build their skills and confidence to be able to include bike riding in their lifestyle, for example riding to school!

 

A key aim for the program is to connect people within the community together, to share stories, experiences and challenges, as well as make new friends.
