"I took the Build a Bike class back in the Summer of 2016. Mikey was a great teacher and helped me realize how manageable it was to fix things on my bike. He even inspired me to pass these skills onto my students. This past year I started a cycling club at the high school where I work. Every weekend we go on a 20-40 mile ride exploring the trails and neighborhoods of Chicagoland. Thanks for all of your guidance, West Town."

"I joined Build a Bike to learn about much more complex bike repairs that I could share with my students as I am the leader of a biking club in Little Village. After the first four sessions I feel like I know so much more than I knew going into this. Alex is a very good teacher, he really takes his time to work with everyone and makes everyone feel included in the class. I hope to implement some of his teaching style while continuing to work with my youth."
