Bike Training for Surrey Students
To help promote safe and active school travel, we’re offering free bike training for all grade 4 and 5 students at all 99 Surrey public schools. The program teaches bike safety and builds confidence in student cyclists. Beginning in the 2015/2016 school year, sessions are taught by professional cycling instructors from
Improving road safety near schools is a high priority for the City. We believe that teaching safe cycling to our youth will create safer road users at all levels. Learning the rules of the road on a bike as a child will encourage higher levels of biking, more aware walkers, and future safe drivers.
This unique training program combines in-class "CycleSmarts" education (35-45 minutes) with a fun and interactive on-bike "BikeWise" training session (90 minutes). Loaner bicycles and helmets are provided to students who do not have the ability to provide their own bike and helmet.
