As a registered charity and not-for-profit, New Hope Community Bikes offers extensive education opportunities to learn both bike repair skills as well as bicycle safety skills.
Each year the shop is open 1,400 hours to offer bicycle repair advice and provide access to tools and workspaces on a 'pay-what-you-can' basis. In addition workshops about basic bike repair and other skills are held on a regular basis.
Beyond the store front location, New Hope Community Bikes provides bike repair and safety workshops for schools and community groups.
Let's face it, cycling can be intimidating, cars are moving fast and bike paths and bike lanes don't always get you where you want to go. Ride Smart is a safe cycling program for youth in grades 4-6 that will help you to feel safe and confident in all the cycling situations you come across. For full details click here.
-New Hope Bikes has 4 years of cycling education experience with schools, community groups and in our own shop.
-CAN-Bike trained and certified instructors tailer the Ride Smart program to fit the time need of the organization, skill level of the riders and suitability of the space.
-The combination of skills development, classroom scenarios and road skills make safe cycling fun and help students develop long term skills.
