Bike Safety

Before getting out on your bike, make sure it is in safe working order. If you are uncertain, take it to one of the local bike shops for a tune-up. Call ahead to see when they can take a look at your bike. 

Be visible when riding! Put lights on your bike, and wear reflective clothing if possible. The Be Bright at Night has more tips on being reflective.  

If you are new to biking (or just need a refresher!), take a look at the B.C.’s Bicycle operator’s Manual, or ICBC to learn the rules of the road, proper bike handling, traffic skills and how to enjoy safe cycling.

Learning to Bike

There are lots of options to help kids get comfortable riding their bikes, both around town and on the trails. The latest  Recreation Guide has details on all the bike classes.
