Event Information

HopOn Campbell River, presented by River City Cycle Club

Hello! I’m Sarah Wright, and this summer, our HopOn Instructors at the River City Cycling Club are running the HopOn program in Campbell River for the 1st year.  Our program helps young riders learn new skills, build confidence, make friends, and appreciate the challenges of outdoor exercise.

This 2023 summer program is for riders with skill levels 3-5 (ages 10-14). Each session includes a skill, a game, and a bike ride in the community. Each session starts and ends at Willow Point Park and may include activities in the Beaver Lodge Forest. Parents are welcome to participate in the session and provide support. Participants will need their bike, a helmet, and their STOKE!

As recipients of a HopOn Development Grant, our instructors have registered with Cycling BC, undergone NCCP training, and completed a background screening. In addition, Cycling BC’s insurance policy with Gallagher provides sports accident and general liability coverage for instructors and participants.

Program Dates:
