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. Classes of 8 to 24 students can be accommodated at most facilities. iRide events at BMX facilities are available for grades 4 and older, whereas velodrome trips are available for older students in grade 7 and older.
For 2016, iRide is able to offer a total of 10 subsidized trips. Teachers and schools interested in developing a cycling group or cycling activities at their school will receive first preference for this activity.
Subsidized events cost $300 dollars, including transportation by First Charter Bus Lines. Assuming 20 students, this equates to $15 per student.
