All of the topics below have a video made up for them on my youtube channel.
I can always go into more details on a topic via a Live video chat if you contact me and book a time.
I have more than a decade experience riding in all weather conditions all year long. I ride 50 km/day, 5 days a week, 6 months of the year during my busy season. I have never been in an accident that wasn't due to my own blunder.
With proper strategy and positioning as well as concise communication, most all of the hazards that exist for some when cycling, will seem to simply not exist for you.
I have taken the Canadian National Can-Bike Instructors course for my formal training. However, what I teach is my own take on all that i've learned through the years.
I teach individuals and groups age 7+, fee depends on the number of participants. Minimum of $45/hour.
Otherwise the topics I cover generally are
-Helmet fit/basic info
-How to safety Check a bike
-Proper safety equipment
-Road safety for both urban and long distance touring.
IF you are interested in learning more ways to be safe while cycling please visit the Safe Cycling Education page from the tabs above. To book a workshop fill the Appointment form from the button below and write in the (description) your interest in something other than bike repair from any of the topics here on the page.
The most economical thing of course, is to just learn to fix your own bike!
Whether you want to learn, just for fixes for the family, your own bike, or because you want to learn to become a bike mechanic as your career.
I'm happy to help!
Teaching can be done live for $45/h
in small groups for a little more.
via video chat for $1/minute.
Absolutely Revolutionary in my opinion. If you wish to learn before you invest, or learn some of the proper care I have learned thus far. Happy to help.
I also have Electrified my own personal bikes and own 3 ebikes.
2 I electrified and one ELF by Organic Transit.
Doing your own E-bike conversions is a great for the following postives
-Maintaining the bike you love
-Not having to make space for another bike
-Having an ebike that is more customizable and open source
-Thus more upgradeable
-Flexible investment being that the electronics can move onto any frame
-never having to deal with the fact that the Ebike company went out of business and now your screwed, Conversion kit companies have less overhead and generally higher chance of survival.
I took 4 years starting at 19 to live out of my Bicycle and saddle bags cycling North and Central America (two laps) stopped a lot along the way, pitching my bike and tent in yards, eco villages, tree houses, small islands, tall trees for my camping hammock; for months on end along the way with the friends I met. Even got to travel on a Veggie oil School bus across Mexico with my Bike and I on the roof (best seat on the bus).
I also did those 4 years on less than $1000/year.
So if your interested in learning how to live out of your Bicycle, or learn how to get by on little financially.
I'm happy to help!
