Progressive Routes p/b iRide Sprockids (#1: April)
Hi! I am Glen Polson and I am excited to offer a new youth cycling program in Sooke this spring! I love riding my mountain bike and am excited to share my riding experiences with your little shredders.
I am offering two different programs this year. Each program includes 6 sessions and offers a fun, safe and memorable community after-school program available to local participants aged 8-12 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 SEAPARC leisure complex, utilizing local features and easy green trails 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 iRide Sprockids experience, perhaps we’ll see you one of Cycling BC’s iRide Summer Camps or Youth Clubs.
I would also like to acknowledge our program’s sponsors and host location, SEAPARC Leisure Complex. Thanks to their support, we have been able to further reduce the cost of this program and make it more accessible to new bike riders! Thank you for your contribution!
Weekly updates will be available for participants via a closed facebook group. Participants will be invited after they complete registration (View Group)
