    Michael was extremely helpful and provided that inside knowledge that I wanted/needed in helping develop better riding skills. Can't wait for future skills classes.

    I've been riding Mike's ride out of Performance Bike Shop for about a year on and off, so I wasn't sure what I was going to get out of this class. But, it ended up being very helpful with filling in some knowledge gaps as well as practicing some basic skills, like making an emergency stop safely. Also, I'd be interested in follow on classes to this one. Thanks for the class, Mike.

    We are at the end of cul de sac by wild flower entrance. Look for cones.

    I posted a discussion on the discussion board just now about a bicycle. If I can find a bike by Dec. 1, I'd love to join you.
