Learn To Ride

Velo Cape Breton has qualified instructors trained in defensive cycling who are available upon request to deliver any of the CAN-BIKE Programs to both members and non-members! If you are interested in registering for the scheduled CAN-BIKE Programs please check the VCB Website. Our instructors are always open to training new groups, as small as 3-5 people.

Participants learn how to check and maintain their own bicycle in good and safe working order. Tires, wheels, brakes, drivetrain are all covered as well as tips on what to do with a chain that keeps jumping off the gears, when the chain keeps jumping off the gears (bad shifting), how to fix a flat on the road.

Sessions given in the off-season (spring and fall) are for 3 hours and class size is limited to 6 persons. Please contact VCB at velocapebretonbicycle@gmail.com
