1st-year programs are supported by an iRide Development Grant and empower new instructors with an iRide Backpack, coach liability insurance, a registration system, and administrative support from CCN and instructor training and mentorship from a Cycling BC coach developer.
To access grant support and start a program, a detailed application form is required. This application is designed to help applicants articulate all of the critical elements of a program to ensure a successful start. Successful applications include at least 2 instructors and given careful thought to the program details such a day of the week, time of day and skill ability level to best match the needs of the community with instructor availability.
Once your grant has been approved, register for an NCCP Community coach and iRide Instructor course near you. All iRide instructors must achieve NCCP Community Coach “Trained” status, and complete the iRide Instructor eLearning and Orientation program.

In the first year of a new program, instructors and coaches are required to pay for their NCCP Community Coach and iRide Instructor training. If your programs accumulate more than $2000 in total revenue through the calendar year, additional insurance fees will be charged and deducted from your post-event invoice, priced at $50 per 3-6 week program, as illustrated in the table below.
Programs requiring certificates of insurance for land-use permissions are not charged in the first year. We remind new program leaders to attain land-use permission before applying for a grant.
|Revenue (all programs)||Post-Event Fee||COI Requests|
|$0 – $1000||$0||$0|
|$1000 – $2000||$0||$0|
Programs returning for their second season and beyond are supported by Cycling BC with legacy access to coach liability insurance, registration and admin support, and mentorship when available. Admin fees are deducted from post-event invoices and calculated by program revenue on a per-program basis. For example, if you ran multiple programs each creating less than $1000 revenue), $50 will be deducted from each post-event invoice.
Programs requiring certificates of insurance for land-use permissions are charged a small nominal fee, also based on the size of their program and deducted from post-event invoices.
|Revenue (each program)||Post-Event Fee||COI Requests|
