Admin & Instructors

A lasting and enjoyable learning experience begins with skilled instructors. Only Nationally Certified Coaching Program graduates are eligible to teach iRide programs, and each new iRide instructor completes an apprenticeship with experienced iRide instructors and Cycling BC coach developers. This way our instructors understand how to best share their cycling expertise all learning styles:

  • auditory
  • visual
  • kinesthetic and tactile.

Our instructor team includes aspiring youth racers, professional coaches with cycling accolades and passionate parents trained to teach.  Our administrative team is centered in the Lower Mainland out of Cycling BC’s head office in Burnaby.

As the Program Manager for iRide – Cycling BC’s youth initiative–Ben enjoys the challenge of creating and implementing new strategies that provide safe, fun and exciting events for introductory youth cyclists in British Columbia.

During his four years at Whitman College, he helped rebuild their cycling team to reclaim the National Collegiate championship in 2009 and 2010. Moving into the North American professional peloton in 2011, Ben raced at the largest events in North America and claimed the Canadian Criterium Championship title in 2012. Ben has worked with youth cyclists in various capacities since 2008, and continues to race provincially in support of youth development.
