Glenridge Gorillas (#2) p/b iRide Sprockids (Autumn)
A fun, safe and memorable community after-school Mountain Bike program available to local participants aged 10-14 with an iRide skill level of 3-5. This program works in harmony with coaches from the Phoenix Velo Youth Cycling Club to help kids access more local mountain biking opportunities. 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 Jones Brown.
This 6-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.
Weekly updates will be available for participants via a facebook group. Participants will be invited after they complete registration (View Group)
