Event Information

Maple Ridge Mtn. Lions p/b iRide

Hi! I am Mike, from Maple Ridge and my team and I are excited to offer a new youth cycling program in the community this autumn! We are passionate about our community, our trails and riding bikes with people of all ages! Let’s go riding!

Our new 6-week program offers a fun, safe and memorable community program available to local participants aged 9-11 with an iRide skill level 4-5.  As recipients of a Cycling BC iRide Development Grant, my team of leaders and I have undergone NCCP-training with Cycling BC to help us utilize the iRide skills curriculum and help your child build confidence, foster friendships and develop intermediate and advanced bicycle skills.

Our sessions plan to stay close to the park, utilize local trails, easy green trails and recreational parks to practice skills.  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.

If your child enjoys their experience, check out one of Cycling BC’s iRide Camps.

Weekly updates will be available for participants via a facebook group. Participants will be invited after they complete registration (Coming Soon)
