"Year after year, we encouraged and tried to help our son, Mitchell, to ride a bike. Year after year, it became more frustrating for him. He would shut down,not want to try any more and it ‘knocked down’ his confidence. He would see other kids in the neighbourhood riding and his friends would ask to go bike riding. To us, he would say, “I can’t ride a bike.” Getting a little older, he decided that the time was now or never. We weren’t sure how to go about it this time, because we wanted so badly for him to be successful. We found the website online and decided to give it a try. Unsure what to expect, we went in with an open mind. It took three sessions for our son to learn how to ride on his own. The trainer was fantastic. He broke the learning down into a logical sequence that, as parents, we never thought of. The trainer built Mitchell’s confidence through patience, expertise and observation of his readiness. As Mitchell mastered one piece, The trainer  would move on to the next step. This building of skills along the way also built Mitchell’s belief in himself. He needed to show perseverance (since he was the one who had to do the work), resilience (as he had to work through the frustrations as he was learning) and humour (The trainer 

would play little games to lighten up the mood when Mitchell felt doubtful).  We would recommend anyone who needs help learning to ride a bike to spend time with this wonderful coach, Peter. We can’t thank him enough for the transformation we see in our son through his Learn to Ride experience." Melissa, Travis and Mitchell S. Oro-Medonte, ON

Unsure of what option to choose?

Each student comes with varying skill sets, so it varies on how much training will be required.

A.            If you are an adult or have a “mature” Child we always recommend  the 1st time 2 hour session. We have a 90-95% success rate , but you may need additional lessons to develop, strengthen your core skills, confidence and ability to control a bicycle.

 B.          Are you slower to learn, or have fears; Starting with our assessment(s) or a training package is a great option. Your trainer will help you build your confidence and skills over a series of sessions, allowing you to develop the skills gradually to meet your cycling goals.  Reserve Your Assessment Today!

C.             Based on previous skill sets that are already developed from other sports, you feel confident you will be very successful, or that you feel dedicated with a series of sessions, will benefit the learning experience, we would suggest signing up for one of our Packages. Still Need help call: 1-855-795-4482 / 705-718-1606

ASSESSMENT OF YOUR CYCLING SKILLS 

ASSESSMENT TESTIMONY

I am a 57 year old, who sadly discovered I was no longer able to ride a bike! With this COVID-19 pandemic, bicycling has been a popular past time for many. I was very thankful to discover this organization provides resources to help individuals, young and old alike discover the joys of this sport. I signed up for the assessment, and am now taking lessons to work on balance and bike safety. My teacher, instructing me, has provided invaluable feedback as to what would be the best type of bike for me to purchase, and has been very encouraging and patient. If you want to learn to ride, or develop your skills, I recommend that you explore this organization as a viable learning option. - C. De Val Toronto Ontario Canada

Not Sure that this is for you?

It’s your choice to select the right option for you, we encourage you to choose an Assessment over a two hour 1st time session, as it gives you insight into how you need to prepare and practice prior to your training session(s). We can't control what you decide. But we will guide and help you achieve your goals with our successful training techniques.

Do you want to prepare for your first time 2 hour training session? 

Do you have a child that might be suited for shorter training sessions, to build up there confidence.

An ASSESSMENT lets you meet with one our trainers to assess your abilities and make recommendations, to help you prepare for a training session or determine which program suits you best. This also includes an introduction to your first 2 hour session, answers any questions or concerns as well as prepares you for what's to come.

COMMITMENT

Everyone is unique in there level of commitment and scheduling, so we make it a two step process, of filling in the registration form.

If your not ready to make payment, but want to get some dates first, thats Ok,  go ahead, fill in our online learn To Ride registration forms , keep in mind, ALL Dates/Times are time sensitive, and expire quickly, if you don't make payment and/or don't reply to our emails, those dates will be passed onto twenty other customers, wanting to get started.

Hockey players, soccer to volleyball to purely academia to Business executives, contractors, Architects, Engineers, It professional, Doctors, lawyers, Nurses, Spinning class instructors, teachers, bank managers, property management, Ballerinas, librarians, Dads, Moms and children of all ages and the long list goes on and on... Each student comes with different levels of experience that provide varying skill sets, therefore, it varies, on how much training will be required.

CHILDREN

If you have a young (4-1/2yrs-10yrs), must be a mature child, we always recommend to start with the 1st time 2 hour session or a 45 minute Assessment. If your committed to have your children up and riding confidently, with a good foundation of training, we recommend the CC Children's PRIVATE training Package.

NOTE: We don’t find children under 4-1/2 years developed enough to learn to ride a bicycle. You may still choose to register your children but, keep this in mind.  Young children should have other sports skills and confidence, before they attempt to ride a bicycle, they must have core strength, an ability to focus and follow instructions, comprehend basic physic principles.

CONFIDENCE VS SKILL SETS

You can choose to start with an assessment session(s) You and your trainer will build the students confidence and skills over a series of 45 minute sessions, allowing the student to gradually develop what they need, to meet your the criteria to learn to cycle, keep in mind; with smaller steps, the results usually take much longer, than gong into our basic  1st time 2 hour session, or signing up for a Tri-Training Package offering a one 2hr + two 1-1/2hr sessions. NOTE: All packages are discounted

NOTE: For children, we remove all training wheels from any bicycle supplied before the session starts and they are discarded, we strongly discourage the customer from taking them home with them, as they are looked upon as a crutch, that only weakens the students confidence and abilities.

If you have and established level of confidence, agility and a strong core  strength, or you play or work in the sports industry, or work out regularly or you feel confident you/your child will be very successful, or that you feel dedicated enough to handle a basic  1-1/2hr to 2 hour group of sessions, then you will probably benefit greatly from our very popular Tri-Training,  PentaTrack Packages, If your not then you might want to select an alternative option listed, or call us for help at: 1-855-795-4482/705-718-1606.

We also offer family packages to train two children within a 3 hour session, or a parent with a child. READ further down near the bottom of this page.

TRAINING TOGETHER?

We don't encourage children to be trained together as they influence each other’s outcome; we make every effort to isolate each training session. When children do come together, we stagger the session, splitting them up, with the last hour of the session, bringing them together.

With guidance and patience, our trainer(s) will have you riding with confidence in no time!

Just think of the freedom you'll experience and all that you can see and enjoy on your bicycle.  The trails you can blaze.....!

Bicycle Safety Tips

Peter will teach you all the bicycle safety tips you will need to know before you ride your bike on roads, paths and trails and how to stay safe.

You can't always control what a vehicle driver will do or not do, but you can sure control that you use all the safety rules of the road correctly and at all times. With Peter learning those rules can be a lot of fun whether you are a child or just young at heart.


Take Heed

  • Don't even attempt to ride on the road until you are CONFIDENT THAT YOU know how to operate your bicycle.
  • Pick a safe, no vehicle traffic area to practice (if child, with an adult to guide you).
  • Always wear a bicycle helmet and make sure it is the right fit for you.
  • To avoid scrapes and scratches, wear elbow and knee pads (optional).
  • Make sure your bicycle is well equipped with lights and reflectors, bell or horn and well tuned brakes and gears.
  • Your bike should be a proper fit for you. Too large, and you risk getting hurt when you loose your balance. Too small, and you will work your leg muscles too hard. Many bicycle shops will work with your child and let you trade up as your child grows (ask their policy on this).
  • Learn some basic bicycle repairs and always have a Bicycle Repair Kit with you when you are travelling.
  • Water bottle and cage are highly recommended for any trip.

    These tips may seem common sense, but you would be surprised how many cyclist don't have much sense!

Download a copy of Cycling Skills or receive your FREE copy with your bicycle riding lesson! Born to Ride Bicycle can also come to your school, boys & girls club or adult group to help you learn to ride a bike! (suitable room to maneuver a bicycle must be available).
