Do you want to make cycling a regular part of your life? Our adult bike skills courses are designed to build the skills and confidence of novice to experienced riders to make cycling a fun and safe!
Capital Bike offers courses at our own teach space, near the Selkirk Trestle, and through local rec centres. See below for our 2023 offerings.
Those looking for one-on-one lessons tailored to their individual level of skill and fitness, especially those learning how to ride a bike for the first time, are encouraged to contact our community partner Susanna Grimes and her program, Joyriding.
Part I – Theory: A thorough overview of traffic rules, cyclist rights and responsibilities, bike and helmet fit, bike infrastructure, route planning, and more during an in-class portion of the course.
Part II – Practical: The on-bike portion of the course begins with a parking lot skills development session. This is where participants develop bike handling and emergency maneuvering skills in a controlled environment. Next, participants embark on a group road ride, putting theory to pavement in a fun and practical manner. Trained instructors maintain a safe environment and make frequent informative stops to provide tips, tricks, and feedback as the group navigates through low-risk traffic situations.
