Forty community volunteers assisted 39 bikers during Lose the Training Wheels, hosted by the Gordon Field House and Activities Center Aug. 6-10. The camp helps kids with autism learn how to ride a conventional bike without training wheels, which organizers say builds self-confidence and provides inclusion with peers. Above, Ethan McNally, an 8-year-old from Rochester, gets pointers from Victoria Vazzana, a senior at Mercy High School in Rochester. UNYFEAT, an organization that supports individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families, sponsored the event.
