Sprockids in full swing!

 

Our Sprockids Program is at capacity. 

The 2017 edition of Sprockids started off with 150 enthusiastic young cyclists - ready to meet spring, and the trails in Edmonton, on one of the better weather days this April. 

For the next two months these budding mountain bikers will learn new skills, maneuvers, and build confidence on their bikes - preparing them for a summer of riding.

Ripping it in Devon

The Sprockids travelled to the Devon Bike Park on Saturday, May 29th to experience some great singletrack, some awesome jumps, a never-ending pump track, and some challenging ramps.   Devon is always a hit, and thanks to the Devon Bicycle Association for hosting the Sprockids and sharing their park.
