"I took an intermediate bike skills course with Jo, and had a great experience. You can tell Jo doesn't just love to ride bikes, but she also enjoys sharing that passion with others. Her classes are fun and Jo communicates how to do each skill in a way that's easy to understand. She gave me time to practice each new skill before hitting the trails."
"I had a great experience taking a mountain bike course this summer. Our instructor Gui was a great teacher, and I really learnt the foundations of the sport, which influence my riding today. A second instructor named Ryan even joined us at the end, so we got added support and guidance. The course did an excellent job covering the basic techniques and took us to a variety of trails in Squamish. Overall it's a fantastic value and a great course/company for anyone new or interested in the sport. Thank you!"
I took an intermediate bike course with Jo, and she completely changed how I approach trails! With a few tweaks to my body position and brake technique, I am more confident and can ride trails that used to scare me. Thank you!
