Through a partnership between BNL and Parks Canada, Sprockids founder Doug Detwiller paid a visit last week to train a group of teachers, Parks Canada staff, and bike shop operators to become Sprockids leaders.
Sprockids is a mountain biking program developed in the early 90’s and used across Canada and in 20 countries around the world. Their mission is “Through the sport of mountain biking young people will have the opportunity to develop the skills, values, and strategies that will guide them throughout their lives and enable them to successfully reach their full potential.”

Earlier this month the Avalon Mountain Bike Association (AMBA) held a “Take Your Kid Mountain Biking Day” in St.John’s.
The event was a huge success with the weather cooperating and some 16 kids hitting their saddles for a morning of skill development and fun!
