Corporate Commute Workshops
SVBC will come to your workplace or community group to teach a one-hour workshop covering the rules of the road, the gear, the route, the ride, and arrival. This is a great introductory workshop for people who are new to bicycling or interested in learning more about how to enjoy safe and comfortable bike commuting in all seasons. Experienced commuters are encouraged to come and share their tips with fellow riders and, hopefully, walk away with new knowledge as well.
Topics covered at the workshop include:
Basics of riding – laws, traffic signals and signs, and how to negotiate bike lanes, bike boxes, tracks, and sidewalks
Skills – hand signals, turning, sharing the lane, and changing lanes
Choosing gear – bikes, helmets, lights, locks, accessories, cold and rain gear, carrying kids and cargo
Route planning – resources and taking bicycles on transit
Q&A – answers to questions from new or experienced riders

We also host seasonal workshops with a special focus on gear options and riding skills for being safe and comfortable riding at night, in the rain, and in other fall and winter conditions.
