BCC youth group will be starting soon. Friday, April 27 is the planned first day (weather permitting).
We are planning to run a basic grass tracks program and a few more advanced rides for the older kids.
The regular ride will be Friday nights, 6:30 pm at the Leslie Spit and various other locations in the area. We will also post other rides (as above) on different days and would be happy to take any advice/ ideas for other cool ride options with the kids throughout the season.
Our rides are structured with learning, bike safety and fun as the main goal. We normally run a skills session (15-20mins) that focuses on bike handling, signals, safety etc. followed by a short 40min group ride to practice group riding. Often times the kids are organized by skill level/ age on the ride to make sure everyone's safe.
If you are interested in participating, please join the BCC Youth group (link is at the bottom of the BCC Rides column on the right) and follow the registration process which is required for insurance purposes. There is also a small fee ($20) which covers the insurance for the year per child.
I've included the detailed instructions below, but basically you have to do the following:
1 Download and print waiver - sign, take a picture (or scan) and email the picture to mikedmcinnis @ gmail dot com.
2 Provide information (name/address etc) to same email and a short description of your child's level of bike riding experience.
3 Bring $20 to the your first ride and provide it to one of the ride leaders (Mike, Dave, James, Luke or Julie) or you can email to me if you prefer.
Please let us know if you are interested, so we can answer any questions and help out with the easy registration process.
If you have any questions - please ask.
We don't have a minimum age, although we suggest that kids be comfortable with basic riding on 2 wheels. We would ask that parents of younger kids to be prepared to ride with your child.
