The Learn to Ride course aims to help children aged 8+ master the skills to move to a 2-wheeled bike. This course will be held at Goldbar Park in East Edmonton (south side of the river, east of 50th street: 10955 50 St NW). A current police and vulnerable sector check is required to volunteer for the bike runner role.

Urgently Needed

Bike runner

Running shoes required! This role will get you running along behind the kids and helping them to gain the skills and confidence needed to master a two-wheeler. No teaching experience is needed, but volunteers should have good communication skills and sufficient fitness to manage two 1-hour classes that will involve some running and hills- particularly as the course progresses. Experience working with children with disabilities is an asset but not required. Our Learn to Ride instructor (who is also an experienced pediatric Occupational Therapist) will guide you through the two-wheeled curriculum as you help guide your student towards success. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to get into education or rehabilitation medicine or for anyone just looking to make a difference in the life of a child. Classes will run in the parking lot of Goldbar Park for six weeks starting on Thursday May 5 (we have allowed for one possible rain out day on June 16). There will be two back to back classes from ~6-8 pm (Group A from 6-6:50: children that require one on one volunteer support, Group B from 7-7:50: children that require the support of 2 adults). All volunteers will be assigned to two students for the duration of the classes (as scheduling permits).
Thursday May 5- June 9 (rain out day June 16) from 6-8 pm
