CYCLING BC – HopOn (formerly iRide) PROGRAMS

A 6 week after-school program for riders 6-16 years old, HopOn After-School programs are designed to teach intermediate cycling skills, build confidence and connect local youth with one another through the challenges of cycling.

HopOn instructors are trained by the National Coaches Certification Program (NCCP) and undergo a background screening. Cycling BC’s HopOn program subscribes to the Coaches Association of Canada’s Responsible Coaches Movement and follows the High Five: Healthy Child Development principles to help our instructors create an engaging and effective learning environment.

The program is designed for students who can already ride and exhibit level 3-5 abilities. Programs are designed and facilitated by local instructors, and often times numerous skill levels are welcome.
