Ride the Road

These fun, practical and hands-on courses are for anyone who can already ride a bike, and would like to get comfortable riding on city streets.

Through classroom and on-road training, you'll learn about the safest place on the road to ride, how to maneuver your bike effectively, how to communicate with other road users, safety tips, and more. When riding on the road our courses maintain a 1:6 instructor-to-participant ratio to ensure optimum safety and plenty of instructor attention.

Testimonials

"I'm starting to commute to school downtown, and I love it…thanks so much for the class. I'm using the knowledge from that class every day."
- Annie Dickerson

"I always admired Vancouver’s legions of two-wheeling, healthy lifestylers, but I assumed I could never do what they did. Now bike riding has become part of my life and I love it."
- Alana Prochuk, The Globe & Mail
