iRide Sprockids @ Port Coquitlam

A fun, safe and memorable community after-school program available to local participants aged 9-11 with an iRide skill level of 4. 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 is also working in partnership with the Tri-City Cycling Club to provide assistant coaches and develop stronger communities ties in the region.

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 6-week skills & fitness 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.

If your child enjoys their iRide Sprockids experience, perhaps we’ll see you one of our iRide Summer Camps or Cycling BC Youth Clubs!
