Thanks again for the bike course, it was fun and useful and I’ll definitely recommend it to my compadres.Magnus, age 16
I just wanted to write to you specifically to tell you how impressed I was by your course – amazing! You were both so good at explanations, very patient and good fun all at the same time. Your workshop was just the right size, location and very well-equipped (to my novice’s eye!) and although nippy in temperature was warm with welcoming teas and smiles – just what I needed as someone who didn’t have a clue about bikes!
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the course and how great Sam was. I definitely learned a lot and hopefully I will be able to save money on future bike maintenance.
