We are very excited to announce our partnership with Cycle HUB and Vancouver Coastal Health! Through this partnership we will be bringing family bike days to the our community.
Safe biking safe is great way to be active at any age!
The first day is on Friday July 26, from 1:00 pm-5:00 pm at the CJMC.
This specialized 4-hour course allows Squamish Nation parents and children aged 7-14 to learn safe cycling skills and experience the joy of cycling together. HUB’s highly-trained instructors will cover concepts such as navigating different local intersections, making safe turns, communicating with other road users, and lane positioning on the road. This course will also include the basics of how to keep your bike running smoothly. Participants will learn through group activities, on-bike skills practice and a neighborhood road ride where families put their new skills to practice on quiet city streets. HUB will also be bringing helmets and bikes to use for those who don’t have them. In order to register, at least one parent must participate for every 3 children.
RideOn has graciously donated about 50 bikes to the recreation department. Upon completion of the family bike program, participants will be allowed to choose from the donated bikes to keep for themselves!
If you would like to register for this fun bike day with some of your family members please email firstname.lastname@example.org and list the name of age of all your family members who will be participating.
