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, unless noted otherwise below)
  • 1-2 hour hands-on session involving cycling skills, technique, safety, and riding on the course
  • An NCCP-trained 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.
