RIDE AN ADAPTIVE BIKE
With our mission of inclusion of physically-challenged children in mind, Believe It Foundation has developed a city-wide adaptive bike program that allows ALL children an opportunity to ride a bike. We understand that children with disabilities often miss out on social and physical activities that many take for granted–like riding a bicycle. We want ALL children to have the opportunity to experience the joy of a bike ride with friends and family!
There are two different adaptive bikes available through Believe It Bikes in San Antonio. There is a $15 membership fee that will give you unlimited access to both bikes in the Believe It Bikes program for 6-months.
Please sign up for your membership at least 48 hours before you intend to ride a bike. Once you have joined the program, proceed to the next step to reserve a bike.
An adaptive tricycle for children and young adults–is available to ride at Hemisfair in downtown San Antonio.
A rider must first use the DCP 12 during one of the designated Inclusion Days that Hemisfair hosts monthly to be trained on how to use the bike. Once a rider has participated in an Inclusion Day, they are able to rent as much as desired after that. The Hemisfair Inclusion Days take place in the second Saturday of every month. (In 2020 the dates are: March 14, April 11, May 9, June 13, July 11, August 8, September 12, October 10)
