eight-foot-long butcher block table for food preparation. Clothes washer and a gas dryer are included.

Residence FAQ & questions.

Can my spouse. child or pet anaconda stay with me? Students with pets, spouses, or children are asked to make other housing arrangements for them. There are several inns, lodges, many B & Bs for those who need alternative accommodation. For the hardy types there is a 7 person tent with standing room.  A family of 4 used this one spring

Where do I do my laundry? There is a washer and dryer in the student residence. On sunny days we recommend drying clothes using fresh air and solar power. Your clothes will smell fresher.

Are the meals catered?  Nope, there is only one instructor and he teaches bike mechanics. There are too many different diets among students for anyone to cope with a wide variety of eating habits. And you wouldn't want to eat his restricted diet either.
Students do their own cooking, which is, to my knowledge, the only Bike School which offers this money-saving feature. If you have similar diets you can even cook together! Food shopping is just three or five kilometres away. See Life on Quadra Island page for more information on Quadra Island amenities and stores.

I'm not bringing a vehicle! Students who don't bring a car can get to the stores by bike, or use one of the shop rental bicycles for transportation. Rental is $200 for 5 weeks. $50 will be reimbursed if the bicycle is cleaned and tuned to its original condition.
