The Residence

It's twenty feet away from the bicycle shop. 
The Animal Farm Trail starts at our driveway, and goes west into the forest.
This connects to the Community Centre Trails network, the baseball diamond, tennis courts, dirt jump course and other community centre facilities.

Four bedroom student residence. Bedding and towels provided.

The kitchen contains all the necessary dishes, pots, pans, cutlery, as well several types of coffee makers. There are extra individual food storage containers to keep your goodies safe.
There is large refrigerator as well as separate storage bins for your dry goods and an 
eight-foot-long butcher block table for food preparation. 
A clothes washer and a gas dryer are included. In the summer we dry with solar power.
The common areas include the dining and living rooms and a south-facing deck through the glass patio door. The roofed main entryway has hooks to hang your bicycles.

Note: This is a school environment. Drugs and alcohol will not be used on the property
Cigarettes must be consumed well away from the residence and bicycle shop.

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. 

Where can I do my laundry? There is a washer and gas dryer in the front porch of the residence.   I use it also. On sunny days we recommend drying clothes using fresh air and solar power. Your clothes will smell fresher.

Are meals provided?  Nope, there is only one instructor and he teaches bicycle 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 specialized 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 cook together!  Food shopping is just 4 or 5 kilometres away. Depending on whether you go north or south. See Life on Quadra Island page for more information on Quadra Island amenities and stores.

I'm not bringing a car!  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 $250 for 5 weeks. $50 will be reimbursed if the bicycle is cleaned and tuned to its original condition.

                             I hope he knows he's about to go over a sleeping bike!
