Safe and Confident Bicycle Handling Skills Lab

From SVBC:

If you know how to balance and pedal but would like to improve your bicycle handling skills and confidence — perhaps to prepare for commuting or errand-running, this on-bike, off-street practice session is for you. Your instructors will demonstrate, and you’ll practice:

  • * Mounting and dismounting confidently
  • * Starting up without hesitation, stopping safely and smoothly
  • * Turning confidently without wobbling
  • * Scanning behind without veering, to check for a gap in traffic
  • * Steering confidently with one hand, to give a hand signal or use a water bottle
  • * Smoothly changing your line of travel to the left or right

Bring your working bicycle and bike helmet.
