The whole Go Velo team was amazing. They built relationships with our children and staff very quickly. The high trainer to child ratio made progress and personalised training easier. The Go Velo team’s sheer motivation enthused these children. We’ve never seen Bikeability delivered so well, and with as much dedication. A HUGE thank you to all the team, and can we have you back next year?
