Saturday May 28, 2016

Sessions are as follows:

1. 9:30 am - 11:00 am
2. 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
3. 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
4. 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

The Family Bike Festival is a playground based event that introduces cyclists to key bike handling skills they will need to ride safely on the road. It does not focus on traffic situations. Our belief is that learning traffic skills must happen on the road.

The Festival is designed for children between the ages of 7-13 plus their parents. It is the first step in Cycling Canada's CAN-BIKE Program. It is important that participants go on from the Festival to participate in the Kids CAN-BIKE on-road course for ages 9-13 or CAN-BIKE 1 for ages 14 and up.

Festival Description:

$15 per participant, 90 minute sessions (2 participant minimum, 10 maximum)
For cyclists 7 and up, without training wheels. The skills targeted in this Festival address major injury prevention concerns for children who cycle. As with swimming lessons, an investment now in cycling training for children can pay off in prevention of serious injury, and lead to greater enjoyment. Summary:

  • Helmet and clothing check
  • Bike fit and check
  • Straight line riding
  • Shoulder checking
  • Signalling
  • Braking and stopping
  • Stop and go
  • Bike security

Other activities may include: 

  • Mounting and dismounting
  • Start and coast
  • Start and pedal
  • Start, pedal, stop
