The Residence

The bike school residence started out both smaller and simpler. It now features 4 individual bedrooms, with individual heaters. Every bedroom has sheets, pillows and duvets, towels, plus a desk or table.

The kitchen contains all the necessary dishes, pots, pans as well several types of coffee makers. There are extra individual food storage containers to keep your goodies away from bugs. (Ants sneak in through the doors when people leave them open.) There is large shared refrigerator and an eight-foot-long butcher block table for food prep. 
The residence common area includes the dining area and the living room which overlooks the south-facing deck through a glass patio door. The other entryway is covered by an overhang with hooks to shelter your bicycles during the rainy season.
Note: As this is a school environment, drugs and alcohol will not be used on the property.

Residence FAQ & questions.

Can my spouse/child/pet anaconda stay with me? Students with pets, spouses, or children are asked to make other housing arrangements. There are several inns, lodges, and many B & Bs, for those who want alternative accommodation. This is up to you to arrange.

I don't have a phone.  How can I call home?  There is a free phone. 

Can I clean my socks here? There are free laundry facilities, although on nice days we recommend doing your drying in the fresh air with solar power.

Are the meals catered?  No, there is only one instructor and he teaches bike mechanics, you would not necessarily cope with his cooking.
Students do their own cooking, but if you eat similar diets you can cook together!  Shopping is only  kilometres away.  See Life on Quadra Island page for more information on Quadra Island amenities and stores.

I can't bring a vehicle. Students who don't bring their own bikes can use one of the shop rental bicycles for transportation. Rental is $200 for 5 weeks. $50 will be returned if the bicycle is cleaned and tuned to its original condition before your departure.
