Adera Development Corporation, BC’s leading multi-disciplinary real estate organization, announced it will be partnering with Cycling BC to bring the iRide program to South Surrey’s Sunnyside Elementary on May 18. The iRide program is designed to inspire young riders; connecting schools with youth cycling groups to experience cycling through safe and fun programs in local communities across British Columbia. Through this partnership, Adera is helping to create sustainable cycling communities across the Province.

Adera continues to grow its reputation not only as an innovative developer on the West Coast, but as a corporation striving towards a new understanding of sustainability. The community of South Surrey, and the collaboration with Sunnyside Elementary was a natural fit with Adera’s South Ridge Club recently opening its arms to the community. “We are committed to fostering communities where youth can thrive. This partnership will ensure the natural beauty of the West Coast can be enjoyed for generations to come” says Eric Andreasen, VP Sales & Marketing. Adera’s support of Cycling BC has helped train over 30 new after-school instructors and grow iRide’s after school offerings to over 22 across the Province.

South Surrey is home to an abundance of biking trails where the youth involved in these programs will be able to practice all the cycling skills developed through participation in the program. “Our dedicated cycling coaches are here to help families across BC discover the joys of cycling and what it can inherently do to support a thriving community,” says Ben Chaddock, Cycling BC iRide Manager. The partnership and continued support from Adera will help Cycling BC’s iRide program to reach more than 10,000 youth across British Columbia.
