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 Urban 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. Courses run the third Saturday of each month from June to September. 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.

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

If you cannot attend the course for any reason and would like to cancel your registration with 8 or more days advance notice, we will gladly refund 100% of your fees. We do not refund fees if you must cancel your course registration within 8 days of the start of the course. However, if exceptional circumstances arise and you cannot attend, please contact us as early as possible and we will do our best to transfer your registration to a future course offering.

All cancellations and requests for refunds must be made through the Eventbrite system. Other forms of notification, such as email or phone calls, cannot be accepted, unfortunately.
