Stephen was such an amazing instructor to learn under. A colleague and I spent a full day riding with him and we had a blast (regardless off the wind and rain). Our Outreach Team was looking to expand from on-foot to bicycles and Stephen taught us the street safety and technical skills we needed to do so! He encouraged us to try obstacles that we were initially afraid of, and I left feeling much more confident on my bike. I will absolutely recommend Stephen to anyone I know looking for some bike training, whether they are a newbie like me, just need a refresher, or are looking for some more advanced skills – this guy has got you covered! I can’t wait to get back on my bike and practice what I’ve learned. Look forward to advancing my skills further with Thrills and Skills Cycling in the future! Thanks Stephen!

Steven did an excellent job instructing my daughter mountain biking. After just one hour she is brimming with confidence and has become quite knowledgeable about the ins and outs of biking and maintenance. Highly recommend!

“Amazing experience!! Great communication. Meets you where you’re at. Very good instruction and extremely encouraging! Stephen and I went for a ride at Doumont yesterday. I recently injured myself while taking jumps, so my confidence was really low. But Stephen walked me through the flow of getting off the ground, having control of the bike in the air and landing smoothly. Then he walked me through a few drops. I had huge growth of confidence in just a couple hours and I feel much better on the trails. Thanks Stephen!!”

“When my son (age 6) needed help transitioning from his training wheels, we called Stephen for lessons. Stephen was patient, fun and relatable, sharing his passion for biking with my son. After only 4 lessons, he was training wheels free and loving it! We will be back for group lessons soon. Thank you so much Stephen!”

“Great stuff Stephen. My son Jack has a blast riding with you over the past week. He’s raving about how much your input helped him advance on his bike. He’s really looking forward to coming back again this summer to continue.
