Do not be intimidated by the name change to 'Level 4'. Cycling Canada has changed the name from '2' to '4' – but – the content has remained the same. This course is for new and experienced cyclists alike! This course is designed to increase the abilities and knowledge of all cyclists, to be able to ride more effectively through all forms of traffic infrastructures.
You will become more confident and have increased awareness on both urban and rural roadways! Most importantly - you will learn correct road positioning to avert accidents. You will learn both the theory and get to practice what being a vehicle under the Highway Traffic Act really means: the applicable rules, and how to apply them defensively, to be safer in all situations. Ideally – you will become the example to emulate.
