Intro to Adult Beginner Bicycling
"Thank you for your kind words & faith in me. You are an awesome teacher & I am so grateful to have you coaching me through this journey. I learned & loved every minute of our session."
"Absolutely amazing! Rebecca is an amazing coach and I felt so comfortable with her there. I hadn't ridden a bike since the 90s and even then wasn't so great at it. She helped me visualize the experience beforehand and gave me the confidence to try my best. I could not have done it without Happy Cyclists. Now I bought a bike and I cycle everyday!"
