Youth Bike Skills Courses

COVID-19 has changed the way we offer our Bike Skills courses. Please review our safety and transmission prevention policy below.

A bike is a youth’s first vehicle; it can give them the freedom they desire, but it also comes with a lot of responsibility. Our youth courses teach traffic safety, cyclist responsibilities, and bike handling skills to develop safe cycling behaviours.

Winter/Spring Schedule Available
