The Burnaby Velodrome Club is pleased to announce the MovingForward program which was made possible with the support of viaSport and the Province of BC, and is offered to our local community, province, and country.

The BVC MovingForward program has been designed to promote mentorship and learning opportunities for the women in our cycling community so that they may continue the legacy of others and be better equipped in “moving forward” and leading.

Women’s track cycling has created a great legacy for Canada on the world stage. Using the Burnaby Velodrome as our community backdrop we will bring together some great leaders from our amazing cycling family to share stories about their journey. This project sets out to inspire women to take up leadership roles in cycling as mentors, coaches, commissaires and just learn about those roles through amazing guest speakers and opportunities for participation in courses. For those in the lower mainland of BC, we hope to close out the program with a track skill session, as well as a Q+A wrap-up pending COVID restrictions.

The BVC MovingForward project will be kicked off at the beginning of February 2021. The program will be moderated by Solveig Stoebe – local creative communication designer, cycling adventurer, NCCP Community coach, Steph Roorda – pro rider, national team member, and Laura Brown, a former National team rider of 10 years, Olympic track medalist, and NCCP level 3 certified coach.

Be one of the first 8 people to sign up and receive 80% off the program!

The MovingForward program is also open to another 12 people who wish to participate at full cost. Access to the live-streamed presentations is open to all at no additional cost. Women only.
