Gibsons MTB Program #3 (Summer) p/b iRide Sprockids
Hi! I am Tom Harder and I am excited to continue to offer a new youth cycling program in Gibsons this summer! Our 6-week programs this spring were a great success, we are going to create another program just for July and August. Participants can either register for all six weeks or just 1 week at a time (drop-in style).
This program includes 6 sessions and offers a fun, safe and memorable community after-school program available to local participants aged 8-17 with a skill level of 3-5. As a recipient of a Cycling BC iRide Development Grant, I have undergone NCCP-training with Cycling BC and Sprockids, and have learned how to utilize both the iRide skills and Sprockids skills curriculum and help your child build confidence, create a fun environment and develop intermediate and advanced bicycle skills.
Our sessions plan to stay close to the Sprockids Trail Network, utilizing local features and all of the amazing youth trails our community has created. All sessions are covered by Cycling BC’s insurance policy with Jones Brown.
This 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. If your child enjoys their iRide Sprockids experience, perhaps we’ll see you one of Cycling BC’s iRide Summer Camps or Cycling BC Youth Clubs.
