    Our family calls Lance the “bike angel.” While his focus is teaching adults, we were so lucky that he saw us trying to teach our son how to ride a bike. He saw our son was “almost there” and asked if he could could give a few pointers. Six minutes later, our son was riding. Lance knew exactly how to teach him. It is clear he is a master teacher. We are forever grateful to have bumped into him and experience his kindness and expertise! Did I mention it was six minutes!
