Abstract
Adaptive Mountain Bike Camp - Tour around the Lost Sierra on a variety of mountain biking terrain while camping under the stars! City of Reno, High Fives Foundation, and Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra will team up to offer individuals with spinal cord injury an adaptive mountain bike camp/camping weekend. The camp will center on accessing a variety of adaptive mountain biking terrain and will be run in partnership with adaptive mountain bike equipment providers and coaches to introduce and/or expand the knowledge and skills in the sport of adaptive mountain biking. The Camp will include: 2 nights, 3 days of camping based out of an accessible campground, 3 days of adaptive mountain biking, all meals provided, world class coaching and trail support every ride, optional timed adaptive mountain bike race, and any necessary adaptive mountain bike equipment. The main objective of the camp is to provide persons with spinal cord injury an opportunity to recreate and enjoy life off-pavement! In order to accomplish this, following the camp rental scholarships will be available to camp participants to access the adaptive mountain bike equipment independently and recreate outside of a structured clinic or program. Expected outcomes of the program include recruiting a minimum of 15 unique individuals with spinal cord injuries, hosting a minimum 3-day adaptive mountain bike camp for individuals with spinal cord injury, and increasing the number of individuals with spinal cord injury participating in ongoing City of Reno, High Fives Foundation, and Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra adaptive recreation programs by 2-3 participants in each program following participation in the adaptive mountain bike camp. The proposed program is relevant to the Neilsen Foundation mission and the sports and recreation category since it promotes a continuum of service, transitioning individuals living with spinal cord injuries from the hospital to their home communities to continue to work on their home rehabilitation programs/personal fitness goals, empowering independent living, community reintegration, socialization, and supporting lifelong health/sport training.
