A 3-day in-school event for grade 4+

iRide In-School is designed to teach basic cycling skills and safety awareness to students over three school days.

To a maximum of six classes, each class receives three 45-60 minute training sessions over three days and works their way through the fun and exciting challenges of iRide. Our curriculum is recognized by the BC Ministry of Education’s Prescribed Learning Outcomes and targets students in grades 4 to 6. Sessions can be run on all-weather fields, grass fields, and paved areas. The program is designed for students who can already ride; however, those still learning will work their teacher, with support from our staff, to fast-track their skills and confidence and join the rest of their class when they’re ready.

In most regions, iRide in-school programs provide bicycles and helmets for students to use during the program. However, we recommend that all students bring their own equipment to help ensure everyone can participate on a correctly-sized bike. Our fleets are sized for grades 4-6 so we request that participants outside this range bring their own equipment.

iRide instructors are qualified by the National Coaches Certification Program (NCCP), complete their iRide mentorship under the supervision of the regional iRide coordinator, 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 to help our instructors create an engaging and effective learning environment.

iRide is funded by private donors, government grants, and program fees from schools. Our cost structure is designed to develop sustainable programs in each BC Games zone and offers discounted programs for all students in British Columbia. Each school’s program is organized by an iRide Champion, a school staff member who in charge of facilitating our visit. iRide Champion duties include booking adequate field space, scheduling a staff member to be present during all sessions and ensuring that all participants are correctly registered.

For the 2018/2019 season, iRide will continue to subsidize the cost of the program, whereby a school only pays 50% of the cost.

Due to strong demand for iRide, Cycling BC suggests schools consider booking every 2nd year. Please submit a booking and our iRide Regional Coordinators will do their best to ensure your students receive the opportunity to participate as often as possible. Bookings for the 2019/2020 season will open on April 1st, 2019.

** iRide supports 50% of the total $1500.00 cost of every standard in-school program. A fully booked program includes 5-6 classes, totaling 150 participants; therefore the school and iRide both invest $750 per program, approximately $5 per student or $1.66 per student per day.

*For the 2019 spring season, iRide is exploring an expansion of resources in various areas of the province. Our goal is to present a strong demand from these new communities during our annual fundraising gala in October 2018.  To help us develop this program and ensure new fleets for either the Okanagan-North (Vernon/Armstrong), Prince George, Fraser Valley and Castlegar/Rossland, please share this information with your fellow school administrators in these regions to consider booking our program. We require a minimum of 12-15 school bookings to consider a fleet investment. Bookings in these new areas will be confirmed on December 1st, 2018.
