CAN-BIKE Program Overview

Designed for the more than 14 million Canadians who ride bicycles, the Canadian Cycling Association's CAN-BIKE program is a series of courses on all aspects of cycling safely and enjoyably on the road; it is oriented toward recreational and utilitarian cycling. The CAN-BIKE cycling safety program provides a nationally standardized set of courses that can be taught through a variety of organizations who are interested in education, safety and health.

CAN-BIKE Instructors are nationally certified highly skilled cyclists and instructors.

Parents and caregivers work with their children to develop safe habits and attitudes.

  • Kids CAN-BIKE ages 9 to 13 provides 12 hours of in-class and on-bike instruction, which teaches steering, signaling, right and left turns, changing gears, braking and avoiding road hazards. Young cyclists are taught to ride safely to school or to the local swimming pool on residential streets. Participants must be able to ride a bike.
