“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 wouldn't change it. Really appreciated the free helmet also!”

“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.”

“Wonderful. I enjoyed it a lot”

“My overall experience was fantastic! Rory and the team are very encouraging and knowledgeable. I am so happy a back-to-basics session like this exists, and I cannot thank you enough for putting it on!

“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.”
