Program Overview:

Peterborough Cycling Club partners with Ontario Cycling to deliver the HopOn program within the Peterborough community!

The Peterborough Cycling Club is a locally-based, volunteer-run, non-profit organization affiliated with the Ontario Cycling Association. The club offers rides most days of the week, covering a wide range of fitness and abilities and offering its members great opportunities for skill enhancement and socializing. From casual-paced to competitive road cycling; mountain bikes to time-trialing to cyclocross, we work to appeal to all interests and age groups.

HopOn is a games-based cycling program that teaches school-aged kids across Canada the joys of cycling safely. In partnership with Peterborough Cycling Club, kids will learn valuable skills in accordance with HopOn levels 2 and 3, taking them from novice and beginner riders to intermediate riders. Kids will have fun learning to brake, stand, corner, ride any terrain they come to, and much more through the fun of games and with the safety of certified instructors!
