Several local parents are helping coordinate a fantastic day at the Quadra Island Children's Centre. Activities will be available to all registered youth ages 3+.
For youth who enjoy riding, there will be several skill-appropriate bicycle rides planned with local guides. The cost for the day, including dinner, will be $40. Make sure you register early as spots are limited.
1. Transporting youth to and from the Children's Centre.
2. Basic items to pack for the day
Youth are encouraged to attend the post-ride dinner at the HBI as well! Besides a youth menu, we'll also have a room setup for youth activities there. Childcare will not be provided at the dinner/party, but there will be lots of parents and kids playing there.
We recommend parents or guardians participating in the Major MAYhem check-in youth at the Children's Centre before making their way to registration and the mass start at the Heriot Bay Inn.
Quadra prides itself on being an artistic community! We'll kick off the day with bicycle-related art that will be featured at the awards ceremony. We're considering a live auction of the artwork with proceeds benefiting our local Sprockids.
Next, we'll hike to Troll Bridge and have some snacks. Maybe we'll get lucky and spot three billy goats!
The area surrounding the Children's Centre is perfect for being outside.
Youth are expected to bring with their own packed lunch.
Youth will create their own CycloQuests Passports. This will be an opportunity for youth to make artistic maps that will help guide them on their own MAYhem Cycloquest.
We'll take a quick snack break and get geared up for biking-related fun.
Our local Sprockids pros will have a number of age-appropriate cycling activities!
Youth will be divided into groups based on their ability. A local chaperone will guide each group on a CycloQuest adventure using the passports created in the afternoon session.
We expect all youth to be back at the Children's centre between 4pm-5pm, depending on their ability group.
Parent or guardian pickup expected by 5:15pm. Head over to the Heriot Bay Inn with your whole crew for dinner, awards and fun!
We anticipate organizing youth into roughly the following age/ability groups. A local, experienced rider will travel with each of the groups.
As we approach the ride date, we'll share details including distance anticipated routes etc...
Please reach out to us on the contact form if you're interested in helping volunteer with this part of the day.
All cycling will take place on or near the Children's Centre grounds. We'll have appropriate mini-races and fun activities on bikes for this age-group.
The Children's Centre and Community Centre are surrounded by a beautiful network of green-level pathways and trails. This age group will stay on the pathways and trails within this area. We anticipate this adventure ride to last around one hour.
Older youth will ride on the Community Centre trails as well as several woodlot roads towards the south end of the island. We anticipate this ride to last between 1 1/2-2hrs.
