Event Details

We love our allies but this event is for the BIPOC community. Thanks!

APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. Thanks to everyone who applied! We’ll be reaching out to you via email on Friday, May 20.

On Saturday, May 28th try mountain biking in a safe, supportive and fun environment at Bert Flinn Park in Port Moody! There will be two sessions that day, 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm. Don’t be intimidated by the videos of pro bikers – we will take it easy and start off on very flat and wide trails as you learn the basics of mountain biking. The sport is fun to try and the instructors and community will be there to support you!

Participants must be 19 years or older for this event.

Thanks to Ozmosis Training we will have certified instructors leading each session who are thrilled to introduce the BIPOC community to this sport, safely! We’ll also have folks from TORCA (Tri-Cities Off Road Cycling Association) to help support the event and provide some food for lunch. Essential Cycles will provide bikes and protective gear (if needed).

General biking experience (commuting, road bike, gravel bike or being comfortable on a bike) is needed to be able to attend and enjoy this event. That means being able to ride a bike safely where you’re able to stop and turn etc. You do not need specific mountain biking experience for this event.

The event cost will include the use of a rental bike for the duration of the session, 3hrs of learning from certified instructors, protective gear (if needed) and a pizza/pop lunch.

This event will be in Port Moody, BC and will take place rain or shine. There are transit options to get to this park but you can also organize carpooling after you receive a registration link, via our private Facebook Group.

We acknowledge that this event will take place on the unceded traditional territory of the Kwikwetlem First Nation, which lies within the shared territories of the Tsleil-Waututh, Katzie, Musqueam, Qayqayt, Squamish, and Sto’:lo Nations.

Once you submit your application, we’ll review to make sure folks are at an intro level, check which time slot you can make and send you a registration link on Friday, May 20th. We’ll do our best to have as many people take part in these sessions!
