Absolutely awesome to see the determination of these two ladies as they braved the weather for our ongoing sofa to saddle course.

After never having learned before, both these ladies are now able to cycle independently.

A huge well done from team Go Velo 👏 🙌👌

Some feedback from an existing instructor who has just requalified on the RPL route. Our tutors David and John were super supportive and Megan in the office really spent time in explaining what was needed to complete the qualification. This really was a stellar team effort.
"just to thank you all for making the training and assessment absolutely seamless, i'm a fretter and you made it all very painless, so for that, thank you.
