Rocco Rodrigues was diagnosed with autism at age 2. Now 9 years old, Rocco has spent the past four days at the "iCan Bike" camp at the Gordon Field House at RIT learning to ride a bike, something that AutismUp says over 80 percent of people with autism never learn to do.
On Thursday morning, he was riding at a pretty good speed around the track with two volunteer spotters running alongside him.
"It's a little bit...I'm not gonna say scary, but startling," he said. "You want to know why? Because you feel like you're gonna fall over."
