CAN-BIKE is a Canadian cycling skills course offered across the country by Cycling Canada. It is a nationally standardized series of courses on all aspects of cycling safety oriented toward recreational and utilitarian cycling. The courses can be taught through a variety of organizations who are interested in education, safety and health.

In Toronto it is offered through the City of Toronto's Park and Recreation department. CAN-BIKE follows the basic philosophy of vehicular cycling, which owes much of its success to John Forester.
