Cycling BC recommends matching your program fees with local after-school care rates. Indeed, participant fees must remain under $12 per hour. We encourage charging participants between $7-$10 per hour to help create sustainable programs. The table below illustrates the approximate revenue and net income earned by new and returning programs operating in either an open grass field or gravel mountain bike trails.
