VB New Student Questionnaire 2022
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST in private lessons with Virtuous Bicycle. We believe that success in cycling is a self-perpetuating loop, a "virtuous cycle". A skilled rider enjoys their rides and rides more. With each ride, their fitness and confidence grow, leads to the ultimate benefit — a lifetime of cycling enjoyment.

• This questionnaire will ask about you, your history, your goals, and your concerns. Based on your input, we will get back to you with an evaluation and lesson planning details.

• Please allow time for thoughtful completion of this questionnaire. Insincere submissions may not receive a response.

Congratulations, you're about to take the first step toward the fun and rewards of riding a bike.

Thank you for trusting Virtuous Bicycle,
Lance Jacobs
