The Go Velo team are consummate professionals. If they say they can do something, consider it done! Go Velo have supported Love to Ride Lancashire in numerous ways, they have enabled us to hold cycling events, led ride and bike maintenance courses with businesses and organisations across Lancashire. They’ve also supported our work at Colleges and launch events. They have provided first rate equipment, bikes and enthusiastic professional instructors whenever we’ve needed them. The Go Velo “can do” attitude has helped Love to Ride collect information about new riders, which in turn has been used to inform further funding, allowing us to continue to promote the benefits of riding a bike to residents across Lancashire. Above all, Go Velo helps build confidence and empower people to “have a go”! Our thanks to the Go Velo Team. Keep up the excellent work!
The whole Go velo team were amazing. They very quickly built relationships with our children and staff alike, set high expectations of our children and gave them the confidence and encouragement to succeed throughout all elements of the Bikeability training. Their enthusiasm for cycling and instilling into our children not only the safety elements of cycling but also the health and enjoyment aspects of it was refreshing. The high trainer/ child ratio made progress easier to achieve and gave time for personalised training to be accessed. The whole Go velo teams adaptability to ensure that even the least confident and non cyclists achieved success was touching and their sheer motivation enthused these children to 'have a go' resulting in some non- cyclists becoming cyclists 🙂 During feedback from our staff team we are all in total agreement that we have never seen Bikeability delivered as well and with as much dedication. Our children were given a real slice of quality training and are now much more proficient and competent cyclists from the efforts put in from Go Velo . . . A HUGE thank you to all the team and please can we have you back next year 🙂
