Participant Feedback

“All the instructors were exceedingly helpful and encouraging. They took time to work with all the participants as well as allowing us time to work independently. They did a fantastic job!”

“I am eager to join the bike riders of Detroit. Thank you for offering this to adults! There never seems to be much programming for adults, anywhere, so this opportunity was surprising and life changing. Thank you! Please continue funding this project.”

"I've gone from not being on a bicycle in over 20 years, to actually looking forward to getting on a bicycle and getting better at riding. A 2 hour session with MoGo helped in that turnaround."

“The class exceeded my expectations and helped ease us into being comfortable on the road. Instructor was attentive to the needs of each participant. It was a very enjoyable experience and I know that I will take the time to seek more biking opportunities in the future.”

"I had not been on a bike in the past 40 plus years...I am so glad that I completed this class because I learned how much I did not know about safe biking. I have already recommended the class to friends who are interested in receiving the same instruction that I experienced."

"On a scale 1 to 10, my overall experience was a 10 plus. I was absolutely skeptical of riding a bike in street traffic, but after the class I feel more confident. The instructions were definitely hands-on! Absolutely enjoyed the street riding experience."

“Very helpful and positive experience. Instructors and helpers were knowledgeable, supportive and friendly. I learned a great deal and am a lot more comfortable with riding on the streets.”

“I loved it! The team was so helpful and gave a lot of encouragement. You could tell they were excited to be there on Saturday. They were into it. I had a fun time!!”

“This is a much-needed course in the city of Detroit. In a place where bicycle culture is exploding, this organization is helping to promote safe riding. I think it would be very helpful if this was brought to more children.”

“The class was great! I have a fair amount of experience riding for commuting and leisure, but even I was able to get some value out of the course.”

Free Summer 2019 Classes

MoGo is offering three types of FREE classes this summer: Biking 101, Confident City Cycling, and How to MoGo. If you don't see a date that works for you, don't worry. More classes will continue to be added throughout the summer, so keep checking back in! Click on a date below to sign up!

 

Biking 101 is for those who have never ridden a bike and want to learn. We focus on finding your balance on two wheels, pedaling, and turning.

 

 

Confident City Cycling is designed for people who feel comfortable on a bike, but less comfortable riding on the street in traffic or in dense urban areas. 

 

 

How to MoGo is new this summer. This FREE, laid-back group ride will show you how to use our stations, stay within 30 minute rides, and get some great exercise!
