DETROIT (WXYZ) – As the weather begins to warm up, more and more people are hitting the streets of Detroit, meaning more people are heading downtown for the weekend.

If you’re looking for a way to get around, MoGo is reminding the public of the pay-as-you go bike service that launched last year. Now approaching the anniversary of the launch of MoGo, the group is offering up a unique set of street skills courses free to people 16 and up.

“We believe that anyone who wants to ride a bike should feel safe, comfortable and confident,” said founder Lisa Nuszkowksi.

The courses start soon and range from beginner bike riding courses for those who’ve never ridden a bike, or simply feel they need a refresher; to a two-hour course meant to get people more comfortable driving near high-traffic areas in an urban environment.

“Whether you’re a regular commuter cyclist and you know everything to know, or you’re a casual cyclist I think this is a class for everyone,” said Rory Lincoln, the director of programming and operations. “We have a class that can appeal to everyone.”

MoGo initially offered courses when it launched in 2017 and had at least 70 people show up. This year they’re offering up more than a dozen classes. Those who attend will get a free helmet and a one-day pass to use MoGo.

According to Nuszowski, ridership is expected to climb this spring. When they launched, the goal was to have 100,000 rides in the first year, a goal they reached in five months.
