Description

May 12, 2017: 5pm-9pm AND

May 13, 2017: 8am-5pm

This advanced course is designed for cyclists who have on-road riding experience and want to improve their cycling abilities, confidence, and knowledge of how to ride effectively in traffic. Formally known as the CAN-BIKE 2 course, this is also the standard course for adult cyclists (16 years and older) taking leadership roles within their communities. The successful completion of the advanced cycling skills course is often a minimum requirement of many employers who require employees to cycle for work.

Students of the advanced cycling skills course will be required to demonstrate to the instructor their cycling ability and a working knowledge of traffic dynamics on the first day of the course. An online requirement must be completed through CAN-BIKE ahead of time and presented to the instructor.

This course acts as the prerequisite to the CAN-BIKE Instructor Workshop. For those who wish to work towards the CAN-BIKE instructor certification, instructors must be informed of this intent on the first day of the Advanced Cycling Skills course. These students will then be required to complete and pass both the written and practical tests and be recommended for instructor training by the course conductor.
