Pedal Foundation’s OCBC Summer Bike Camps (8-13yrs)
Come have fun and make new friends while riding your bike with OCBC (Our Community Bike Club) during these week long summer camps. Participants will learn the skills needed to ride safely with two qualified staff in a bike safety rodeo before graduating to cycling on the street. We will go on cycling adventures around the city using bike routes and stopping in local parks for snacks and games. Bring your bike, helmet, snack, healthy lunch (not nuts please) and water bottle. Wear weather appropriate clothing. No bike, no problem – loaner bikes are available upon request.
The Earn-A-Bike (14-18yrs) program gives youth without bikes the opportunity to build their own while they gain the knowledge to maintain their bikes in the future. This program is mechanics based and teaches participants the function of each component of their bicycles. By the end of five eight hour sessions, participants will have refurbished a bicycle to use for transportation and fun. No mechanical experience required!

Britannia Elementary NEW!
Ms. Costa’s class Winter 2014
At Byrne Creek Secondary School this year we have 5 Earn-A-Bike students. All but one of them started with no experience working on bicycles (nor did they know names/uses of most of our tools) and now they are all well on their way to having their bikes completed and road ready. One of the boys suffers from cerebral palsy and has limited use of one of his hands, but everyone else in the club is happy to help, which not only allows him to participate but actually build up his bike at the same pace as all the rest. So far club has been great, everyone has shown alot of committment, dedication, enthusiasm and excitment. We hope to have all the bikes finished by Christmas holidays.
INSTRUCTOR TRAINING II
We ran our second successful instructor training. Instructor Training is a program we launched this year to train teachers and youth workers who are interested in offering bike programs in their schools.
