Learn to ride a bicycle whether you are young or young at heart!  Cycling is too much fun not to!

Available as soon as weather permits in the Spring and continue throughout the cycling season! 

"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 Peter’s 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. Peter was fantastic. He broke the learning down into a logical sequence that, as parents, we never thought of. Peter built Mitchell’s confidence through patience, expertise and observation of his readiness. As Mitchell mastered one piece, Peter 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 (Peter 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

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

Just think of all that you can see and enjoy on your bicycle.

The trails you can blaze.....!

"I'm so excited!  Now I can join my husband and kids on bike rides.  Peter is great!" AJ, Milton, ON.  Had her training while on vacation

You know it takes a both effort and energy to ride a bike?  ...but, don't fret!

We will work with you slowly but challenge you to success so you can shout "WOW...what a ride!"


***All first time learn to ride students are required to complete a 2 hour training session.

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.


Peter Says



  • Don't even attempt to ride on the road until you are well balanced and know how to operate your bike.
  • 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!
