Testimonials:

“This is an excellent course for beginning to intermediate level riders. More experienced riders might also learn a thing or two! Great mix of classroom and on-bike practice.”

“My confidence on the bike has grown so much since taking the course; I am now riding on roadside bike lanes (instead of trails only) and growing my routes to include more areas as a result. I am able to look out for potential safety hazards and plan enjoyable routes with what I learned! Thank you to the helpful instructors – this course is an invaluable resource for new bikers.”

Testimonials:

“I took this course as a refresher about traffic safety after a few years of not biking. It helped me build the confidence I need to start commuting by bike. The course was informative and fun! I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to feel more comfortable and safe biking in traffic!”

“The instructors were terrific. Very encouraging and open and alert to different skill levels of participants.”

Testimonials:

“I would encourage anyone who has not been on a bike for a number of years to take this course. It was well worth the time and price with useful information and friendly knowledgeable instructors. The practical skills on our bikes was a good challenge both physically and mentally. The best part was the group bike ride through the community where we practiced all the new skills we had just learnt. Well done Capital Bike Society! And thank you. I plan to take this course every year as a tune-up for my bike riding skills.”
