Visit a local youth cycling group and try 1-3 sessions free of charge
If your child is interested in exploring bike riding in a friendly club setting there are many youth club opportunities across the province.
All Cycling BC-affiliated youth cycling clubs offer 1-3 free sessions to help new riders try out the club. A minimum ability level equivalent to Level 5 is suggested before visiting with a youth club.
Club often offers open house events each year that invites new riders to bring a friend and try the club for free. All youth clubs are coached by NCCP-certified coaches and follow Cycling Canada‘s Long Term Athlete Development Model.
Each club offers a unique combination of services to best fit the needs of the community and sessions may focus on either one or multiple cycling disciplines. Rental equipment may be available for new riders. For more information, please use the below table to contact the club in your area or review this month’s upcoming club practices here.
