Event description

Description

We believe anyone can learn to ride competently and confidently on Calgary roads, and we offer a fun and effective way to do so. Bike Calgary’s Commuter Cycling Skills program offers online training and instructor-led courses to improve your knowledge, cycling skills, and confidence with urban cycling.*

Bike Calgary has partnered with Cycling Canada’s national Can-Bike Program to deliver a one-day, instructor-led Commuter Cycling Skills course that will teach you the essential skills for safe and competent cycling on city roads, navigating everything from quiet residential streets to more challenging scenarios when sharing the road with downtown traffic. Our instructors are all nationally certified with Can-Bike, and we offer a low student-to-instructor ration (6-to-1 or less) so that you get lots of personalized instruction.

Our one-day Can-Bike courses run from 8:30 to 17:30 at the CommunityWise Resource Center on 12th Ave in the Beltline. Participants must be 18 years of age or older, although youths 14+ may attend if accompanied by a parent or guardian who is also participating in the course. We also offer a $20 discount for Friends of Bike Calgary members (email your Friends membership number to training@bikecalgary.org, and we will provide you with a discount registration code!).

As a special bonus, all participants who register for our one-day course will also receive access to free online training materials that will help make you a better urban cyclist. Much of this content has been created specifically for Calgary cyclists, providing a quick and easy way to educate yourself about rules of the road specific to Alberta and Calgary, as well as other Calgary-specific topics, such as how to use your bike on Calgary Transit or where to find resources for planning cycling routes in Calgary. While we strongly recommend that all participants complete this online training prior to attending the one-day, instructor-led course, it is not mandatory.

Refund Policy

All cancellations and requests for refunds must be made through the Eventbrite system more than 7 days in advance of the course. Other forms of notification, such as email or phone calls, cannot be accepted, unfortunately. Note that the Eventbrite registration fee (approximately $6) is nonrefundable, although the remainder of the course fee is refundable.
