Hello! I’m Ashton Sweetnam and this season, my team of iRide Instructors and I are starting a new iRide After-School program in Chase, BC. Our program aims to help young riders learn new skills, build confidence, make friends and build an appreciation for the challenges of outdoor exercise.
Our 2021 spring program, Chase Mtn. Bike Program presented by iRide, will be 6-weeks long and is designed for ages 6-12, skill level 0-5. Each session includes a few skills, a game, and a bike ride at Haldane Elementary. Participants will need to bring a mountain bike (or a kid’s bike with gears), a helmet, and of course their STOKE!
To help your child enjoy their experience, we are offering 3 different registration categories, based upon Cycling BC iRide skill level self-assessment:
As recipients of an iRide Development Grant, our instructors have registered with Cycling BC, undergone NCCP-training, and completed a background screening. All sessions are covered by Cycling BC’s insurance policy with Gallagher and permitted by school district 73.
In addition, local grant funding has helped cover the instructor training costs and subsidize participant registration fees. This means that our program’s very first offering, from May 3 to June 14th will be FREE. Participants will be required to register online and purchase a Mini-Membership (included in the registration process). Local funders and supporters include: Chase Rotary Club, the Chase Legion, the Chase Sunflower, and Sunflower Bicycle Repair.
If you have any questions, please send us a message.
