The Capital Regional District (CRD) and the Greater Victoria Bike to Work Society (GVBTWS) partnered to offer the Ride On! cycling program throughout the Capital Region from April-October, 2014. These interactive, informative courses empower novice riders to make cycling a regular part of their lives, as well as help experienced riders fine-tune their skills.

The courses were designed to increase participants’ confidence and comfort riding in traffic, by teaching them the skills and best practices to enhance their lives through fun, safe cycling.

Nearly 60 courses were available in communities throughout the region.
