As your school’s iRide Champion, please help us create a memorable iRide event by assisting with the following:

  1. Before Booking
    • Speak with Principal & PAC and explain iRide’s 3-yr sustainability policy
    • Ensure adequate field space is booked and no field maintenance is scheduled.
      • Ideal spaces include a grass field, an all-weather field or a closed paved surface.
  2. Once Confirmed
    • Distribute pre-event iRide information package to parents 4 weeks before Day 1.
    • Remind students to complete the online waiver before Day 1.
  3. During iRide
    • Provide event time-table and class rosters with participation and photo consent.
    • Ensure each participating class has a teacher present for supervision, behavior management, and first-aid needs.
    • Help facilitate thank-you card project by students, if possible.
    • Help facilitate payment to Cycling BC if a 2nd or 3rd-year school.
