VACC Winter Programs

VACC Winter Programs 2009
 Streetwise Secondary and Bike Commuter Station #3

 This spring Grade 11 students from Churchill Secondary
in Vancouver plan to ride north along the east coast
of Vancouver Island, cross to Powell River from Comox,
and return south to Vancouver via the Sunshine Coast.

The students were split into two groups,
intermediate and experienced cyclists.

VACC instructor Karen Ageson looks on as a
student practices weight transfer for heavy braking.

Program Coordinator Lisa Slakov tests riders’
awareness for lane changes and shoulder checks.

 Students shoulder check and identify
how many fingers the instructor is holding up.

 The students had to make a difficult left hand
turn onto the Heather Street bike route.

All the riders crossed without incident.

 High viz vests are recommended attire
for cyclists  in an urban environment.

Hanging Loose

 A winter bike commuter enjoys free coffee and
a quick pit stop with the on-site Bikes on the Drive mechanic.

 The VACC is running six Winter Bike To Work stations
(one per week) for the final six weeks of 2009.
