“My confidence on the bike has grown so much since taking the course; I am now riding on roadside bike lanes (instead of trails only) and growing my routes to include more areas as a result. I am able to look out for potential safety hazards and plan enjoyable routes with what I learned! Thank you to the helpful instructors – this course is an invaluable resource for new bikers.”

“This is an excellent course for beginning to intermediate-level riders. More experienced riders might also learn a thing or two! Great mix of classroom and on-bike practice.”
