iRide Logo 2017.V4 (iRide Only) (iRide Trip) (Narrow)

A 1/2 day trip for students who wish to explore new cycling skills and challenge themselves in a fun setting.

iRide Field Trips showcase local cycling venues and provide a safe environment for students to learn cycling skills & cycling safety unique to each venue.  Participants will learn how to ride on special equipment or in these new settings, building up to complete 1 full lap of the BMX track, ride the velodrome banking or explore a challenging mtn. bike trail.

In order to ensure a safe and positive experience for all participants, trips are limited to students in grades 6-12 (unless otherwise specified) and riders who exhibit a skill ability equivalent to iRide Level 4 or above.

Students will also be provided with an information card that provides details about the local club and an invitation to return for additional free sessions.

Trips include:

  • 1 class per field trip (max. 25 students)
  • 1-2 hour hands-on session involving cycling skills, technique, safety, and riding on the course
  • A nationally certified coach will lead the session
  • Bus transportation available through First Charter Bus Lines
    • A school may access transportation support through iRide at discounted rates, up to a maximum of 2 events per year.

These trips are valued at $750/session, however, thanks to kind donations by the Burnaby Velodrome Club and iRide’s private supporters, trips are available at heavily subsidized rates.  Students can also return the venue for additional training sessions free of charge – details.
