MoGo is Detroit’s first public bike sharing system, with 430 bikes at 44 stations across 10 Detroit neighborhoods. Designed for quick trips around town, MoGo is a fun, flexible, and convenient way to get around. Their Micro-Grant helped fund the MoGo Street Skills that provided free public bike safety education for people of all ages and cycling abilities to promote proper biking techniques and inspire confidence on two wheels.
Below is some feedback from participants in who took the Street Skills class, made possible by LMB and Micro-Grant donors:
“This experience would not have been possible if not for the generosity of others. I was provided basic road instructions while street cycling in a friendly and informative manner. I had a terrific time!”
“I was impressed. I love riding my bike but was almost hit by a car last year. And I have been afraid since. This class helped me overcome my fear and made me more knowledgeable of riding with traffic. Ex. How to change lanes and signaling. Everyone should take a class like this before riding in the city streets!”
