"Smokey offers a great combination of patient & methodical teaching, passion for all-things-bicycle, a wealth of knowledge and experience, and a beautiful island community to take part in. The bike shop and student housing connect to amazing forested trails perfect for walking, jogging, or biking, and lead to the Quadra community centre with weekly community lunch, yoga classes, and island market. There’s so much cycling & hiking on this island, I love that we get free time to explore. Most of all, I'm excited to be feeling more and more confident to handle any bike mechanics challenge that rolls my way..."
