Doug Detwiller is extremely honored and humbled after hearing that he was named one of the 14 most influential Canadians in cycling by the Canadian Cycling Magazine.
Detwiller, who lived and taught on the Sunshine Coast for a long time started the Sprockids program back in the 90’s because he wanted to help young kids with their self-esteem and anger issues through mountain biking.
The program has expanded dramatically since his official launch and is now being used in 21 different countries.
Detwiller says the Sprockids program will continue expanding. He says in the last three years, he’s trained 414 Sprockids leaders in Canada alone.
