Lifelong habits start at a young age. The sooner kids are taught safe bike handling skills, the quicker they develop confidence and ability on their bikes. Through clinics which teach these skills and knowledge through fun and creative activities, kids learn that cycling can be fun, easy, and safe.
Kids courses will resume in early 2023, Bike Skills courses are currently on hold for winter off-season of 2022/23. From February-October, we hold Kids Bike Skills Courses at local community centres.
The 3 hour on-bike clinic will focus on the following areas:
• Promote Helmet use and proper fit/safety equipment
• Following traffic rules and promoting safe cycling behaviour
• Proper bike riding techniques like balance, braking,
steering and more
• Personal injury prevention strategies
The skills are taught through games and skill-related activities and are always fun! At the end of the course, each kid will receive a certificate outlining each key skill they learned.
*Please note that kids entering our courses must be able to ride a bike without training wheels. They must also be able get on and off a bike without help, start and stop a bike without help and maintain balance while pedaling for short distances.
