Biking can be a relaxing, enjoyable activity for many, but for people with autism, who often need extra physical support to ride, finding the right bike isn’t always easy. Thanks to a grant from The Arc of Green County, which is the local chapter of a national disability rights group, and the Community Foundation of Southern Wisconsin, students with disabilities at Brodhead schools are pedaling with bikes tailored to their special needs.
