Shuswap Cycling Society Youth Ride Series

Join passionate volunteer parent coaches on weekly rides on the trails of South Canoe. Kids will be divided into groups of approximately 6-10 of equal age and ability. Each week there will be a different theme but most of the instruction happens during the ride.

Rides run from 5:30pm to 7:00pm Tuesdays at South Canoe starting April 16th until June 25. We will have informal smaller group rides in the summer, and potentially reconvene for a few weeks in September.

NEW THIS YEAR: All participants must be members of the Shuswap Cycling Club.

Costs are $25 per individual or $40 for a family.

Registration is capped at 60 riders. If registration is full and you are interested in joining a wait-list, email [email protected].

Please make sure your rider is ready to go each week with the following:

Bike in good working order!

  • mountain bike that is the appropriate size and suitable for ups and downs
  • brakes that will work on steep hills
  • gears that shift smoothly and will be easy enough for steep climbs
  • tires with knobby tread to grip on loose trails
  • all the bolts are tight and wheels turn smoothly and are not warped

Gear that is appropriate for the day’s condition

  • quality helmet with no dents or cracks
  • a water water bottle or hydration backpack/hip pack is mandatory
  • a small pocket snack like a bar or some trail mix
  • gloves are recommended
  • softer flexible knee pads are recommended
  • clothing appropriate for the weather (we will ride rain or shine!)
  • If the mosi’s bother you, bring some bug spray. But if we keep moving they can’t catch us!
