A great way to get ready for Bike Month. Learn the skills to be safe in traffic. Not every bike route is a separated lane you know!
VACC Streetwise Course
This fun, practical and hands-on course is for anyone (16+) who’d like to be more comfortable riding in traffic. Through classroom and on-road training you’ll learn about the safest place on the road to ride, how to maneuver your bike effectively, communicate with other road users, handle riding at night and in the rain, and much more. You’ll gain the skills and confidence you need to enjoy riding in the city!
