HopOn kids cycling program

Last update: April 8, 2022

HopOn is a games-based cycling program run in partnership with Cycling Canada. The goal is to help school-aged kids develop basic cycling skills and safety awareness.

The program is run across the country, including here in the Yukon.

Who is HopOn for?

If your child can ride a 2-wheel bike for 60 pedal strokes without stopping, they are ready for HopOn. Their bike also needs to have working hand brakes and gears. They need a helmet.

What skills will your child learn with HopOn?

  • Starting and braking;
  • Straight-line riding;
  • Scanning and signalling;
  • Turning at different speeds;
  • Positioning and wheel lifts;
  • Dismounting and remounting;
  • Bumping and buzzing;
  • Gearing and cadence;
  • Climbing and descending; and
  • Riding off a drop-off.

Our instructors will tailor the focus of each session to the age and ability levels of students. Our sessions are conducted within the safe confines of a traffic-free environment.
