Try an iRide BMX or Velodrome Field Trip
A 1/2 day trip for students who wish to explore new cycling skills and challenge themselves in a fun setting.
iRide offers a collection of unique field trips to various indoor cycling facilities across British Columbia. Transportation is available for these events through First Charter Bus Lines. Coaching staff include nationally certified coaches from each venue.
Our field trip program is designed to showcase local cycling venues to one class of students at a time. Each class receives one 60-120 minute session, a safe learning environment and a fun, memorable experience for each student. Participants will tackle skills unique to each venue, involving bicycle safety, cycling technique, and challenging courses.
Facility and equipment capacity may vary from location to location. A maximum of 20 students can be accommodated per booking. iRide events at BMX facilities are available for grades 4 and older, whereas velodrome trips are available for students in grade 6 and older.
For the 2017/2018 winter season, iRide is offering a number of subsidized trips to the Burnaby Velodrome – learn more here. Spring 2018 feild trips will be announced at a later date. Teachers and schools interested in developing a cycling group or cycling activities at their school will receive first preference for this activity.
