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 maintenance and mechanics, 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 10 km 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.
At the end of the course, participants will receive a take home Bike Skills manual, a Greater Victoria and Gulf Islands Cycling Map and a personalized map of their own route that they ride.
The adult quick course is an express version of our full day bike skills program, most of the same content will be covered and the day will also conclude with a group ride. This course is ideal for those with a tight schedule and busy lifestyle.
