A weekly community program designed for Skill Levels 3 and beyond

iRide Community is an initiative that connects the NCCP Community Initiation skills curriculum with support from Cycling BC’s iRide program to create more opportunities for local youth to develop their bike skills in a safe and fun environment. Grants are available for new leaders (parents, teachers, community leaders aged 16+) who wish to bring iRide Community to their area.

iRide Community can be implemented in your community to fill existing programming gaps by either:

  • School Bike Club led by trained teachers
  • Community program led by trained instructors

To a maximum of 6-10 participants per instructor, each program is 4-6 weeks long and includes games and challenges from both the NCCP and iRide curriculum. Typical sessions include skill development, bicycle rides, and games appropriate to participant age and ability, following the Cycling Canada Long Term Athlete Development Model (LTAD). Program leaders choose the format of their program; Cycling BC suggests 4-6 sessions, meeting 1 day a week, and is specific to either Skill Level 3, 4 or 5.

iRide Community instructors are trained by the National Coaches Certification Program (NCCP), receive mentorship Cycling BC coaches and undergo a background check. Cycling BC’s iRide program subscribes to the Coaches Association of Canada’s Responsible Coaches Movement and works with High Five: Healthy Child Development and the Canucks Autism Network to help our instructors create an engaging and effective learning environment. Sessions are covered by Cycling BC’s insurance policy with Jones Brown.

Benefits of iRide Community:

Parents & Kids Qualified instructors provide a low-cost and sport-focused after-school program
Instructors & Volunteers Receive discount training, equipment, and support with the potential to earn a competitive wage
Teachers Receive training on fun new ways to teach academic lessons. BC gov’t $500 tax credit available.

Cycling BC iRide Connect iRide school participants to fun leaders and grow province-wide participation
