iRide In-School is designed to teach basic cycling skills and safety awareness to students over three school days. To a maximum of six classes, each class receives three 45-60 minute training sessions over three days and works their way through the fun and exciting challenges of iRide. Our curriculum is recognized by the BC Ministry of Education’s Prescribed Learning Outcomes and targets students in grades 4 to 6. Sessions can be run on all-weather fields, grass fields, and paved areas. The program is designed for students who can already ride; however, those still learning will work their teacher, with support from our staff, to fast-track their skills and confidence and join the rest of their class when they’re ready.​  If students do not have their own bikes and safty gear iRide in-school programs provide bicycles and helmets for students to use during the program​.
