"I am 27 years old and I had never been on a bicycle until the class. This was something I always wanted to learn, but the more years that passed the more anxious I felt about the process of learning. Now I am really exited about cycling, and I am looking forward to the summer on wheels! I even inspired my older sister to learn!"
"Thanks so much, I couldn't tell you guys enough how grateful I am for the wonderful program you have and the skillful professionals that you are! I had a great time! Thank you for all your volunteers and all the people that make these bike lessons for adults happen! I am so very happy—I am 60 yrs young, never learned to ride a bike and with your volunteer staff's guidance, patience and instructions, I learned the same day!"
