Our Youth Bike Adventures are all about getting out there, on your bike. During the multi-day bike camping adventure, youth will learn self-confidence, social responsibility and working through challenges. They will learn many practical outdoor skills while gaining knowledge about nature and local history. By travelling slower, you see more and have more experiences.
All Youth Bike Adventure trips are preceded by training rides and education around bike safety, warm up exercises, appropriate clothing selection, camping etiquette, and riding in weather.
These multi-day bike camping adventures take place on Saltspring Island or Galiano Island. Gulf Island roads are quiet and peaceful with little traffic, albeit a little hilly at times!
Average daily cycling distances vary from 10km up to 40km max. Youth will be grouped according to ability, with a maximum of 8 riders per group along with adult leaders.
Camp activities include: beachcombing, forest hikes, touring lighthouses and marinas, campfire stories, slideshows, lake swims, outdoor games and more! LIFECycle can tailor activities to the interests of the group.
LIFECycle oversees parental support, youth rider grouping, equipment selection, food planning, route mapping, mechanical support, vehicle back-up, radio support and campsite organization.
