HopOn in Nova Scotia

Cycling Nova Scotia is psyched to team up with Cycling Canada to provide HopOn skills camps in Nova Scotia!

HopOn is a games-based cycling program that teaches school-aged kids across Canada the joy of cycling safely.

Modeled after Cycling BC’s existing iRide program, the HopOn national grassroots program aims to provide access to cycling across Canada.

Building on the A, B, C’s of cycling (Attention, Balance and Control) following National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) training for cycling, HopOn camps increase the riding skill and confidence of kids and youth up to age 16.

To simplify program delivery, CNS will be providing staff to interested schools and communities in HRM, along with skill-appropriate equipment. CNS is looking forward to getting more youth in Nova Scotia interested in being active for life!

HopOn programming is delivered in two settings:

Compact HopOn programming can be provided in school by HopOn Trained staff provided by Cycling Nova Scotia.

HopOn sessions are great for grades 3-6, and will be delivered over three days during the week for up to 90 minutes per session. Sessions focus on basic cycling skills and bike maintenance.

Please contact to find out more.

Community level HopOn programming can be provided to interested Affiliated or Associated Cycling Clubs in Nova Scotia. CNS can also provide trained staff to Municipal Active Living programs starting in July.

Community Level programming is tailored to young athletes between 6-16 years of age. Intermediate cycling skills are the focus for community programming –especially for teenage participants.

2023 is here and HopOn will be expanding to many communities across Nova Scotia to help teach and inspire the love of cycling in youth aged 6-16.

As the season progresses, we will have more information on HopOn programs and where you can sign up.

If you have any interest in becoming involved as a volunteer or instructor, please contact.
