Quadra Island Elementary Bike Club p/b iRide Sprockids
A fun, safe and memorable after-school program available to local participants aged 6-11 with an ability equal to iRide skill level 1, 2 or 3. The program will use the iRide skills curriculum and the Sprockids skills curriculum to help your child build their confidence, foster friendships with their peers and develop intermediate and advanced bicycle skills.
This program builds on the legacy of Doug Detwiller’s Sprockids curriculum to connect kids in your community with certified NCCP coaches trained to work with young people through Cycling BC’s iRide program. All sessions are covered by Cycling BC’s insurance policy with Marsh Canada.
This 8-week learn-to-ride program covers a variety of topics that involve all aspects of riding. Participants will learn riding techniques such as uphill, downhill, tight turns, braking, gearing, and how to properly adjust their bike to fit themselves. The final 3 weeks in June will include community bike rides!
