Volunteers needed for learn-to-ride course for children with special needs


This spring, we will once again offer You Can Ride 2: Learn-to-ride, a course for children with special needs, and we are in need of volunteers. In its 12th year, this program has a very high success rate and is extremely fun and rewarding for the volunteers, children, and families.

The course runs Thursday early evenings starting in late April through to early June. Each week, we will run two back-to-back one-hour sessions.

Who are we looking for?

  • Occupational and physical therapists
  • Experienced cyclists

It’s the synergy of the two groups that have made our program such a success.

The course is held in the parking lot of Gold Bar Park (as far north as you can go on 50 St and still be south of the river) with the first session starting at 6pm. A volunteer orientation is held beforehand.

If you can volunteer, or you would like more information, please contact John Collier at learntoride@edmontonbikes.ca. Please feel free to pass this invite on to any knowledgeable cyclists, physical therapists or occupational therapists you know.
