The goal of the camp is to introduce young cyclists (ages 8-13) to multiple aspects of cycling while striving to keep the fun in cycling a priority. Weekly camps will include BMX, trail riding, velodrome, road skills and bike maintenance. Tons of cycling based games will be utilised in skill development, helping to create skills within a fun filled environment.

Each day will showcase a different style of cycling: BMX, MTB, Velodrome and Road, utilizing local trails. Bicycles and helmets will be provided for riders in need. If you like your bicycle, you can purchase the equipment at the end of the camp. Riders will also receive a Cycling BC iRide shirt as well as the chance to win year-end prizes.
