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.
This is a 6 hour course that alternates between 45 minute segments in class and on bikes. The in-class portion of our course focusses on:
- Traffic rules and the principles of safe cycling
- Cyclist rights and responsibilities
The on-bike portion of our course will improve skills such as:
- Emergency stopping
- Bike handling
- Shoulder checking
The course concludes with a guided road ride where participants practice their knowledge and skills through various traffic situations on quiet, residential streets.
