Adult and Children Learn to Ride

This is a 3 to 4 hour course for individuals of all ages who have never learned how to ride a bicycle.  The focus is on mastering balance, basic bike riding skills and riding comfortably.

Bicycle Rodeos for Children

Both classroom and playground components are offered for schools and community groups.  A structured format is provided which covers pre-ride essentials including helmets, bike checks and personal checks. The in-class session covers safety considerations and principals, road positioning, and sidewalks, with a video highlighting important safety messages.  The playground set-up gives the opportunity to learn and practice essential handling skills including straight line riding, braking, shoulder checking, signalling and gearing.  An on-road component is optional depending on the availability of adult supervisors and low volume local roads.
