Helping Kids Learn to Ride

Getting children into cycling is one of the most important things we can do in order to create a stronger cycling culture in Nova Scotia. Kids who feel confident on their bikes are more likely to be active and to get out and explore. Young people that fall in love with cycling are more likely to continue using their bikes into their later life, contributing to a healthy lifestyle, a lesser impact on the environment, and a life long passion. If you have a child that you think would benefit from some training, there are a number of resources available.

Don’t forget – the best way to get kids into biking is to have the parents actively involved. Get on your bike, shown ’em how it’s done, encourage them to come along!

Getting started:

1) If you want your child to learn the joy of cycling safely in a game based curriculum, sign them up for HopOn skills camps! We have teamed up with Cycling Canada to offer this program in Nova Scotia.

2) If Hop On is not offered in your area, contact your local recreation director or department. Most towns will have somebody dedicated to recreational opportunities and they will be the best resources to find out about places to get training locally.

3) You can also contact your local bike shops. They are an incredible resource in terms of opportunities for training, rides, and resources.
