If you’ve never been to a National Trikke Riding Skkool read what others have said about their experience. 

You guys really helped me turn the corner on this trikking business…and I am loving it. I have been out at least 45 minutes each night after work.  I just wanted you to know by the time I left I had turned a corner for the good…thanks so much…it was an overall great time.  – Sharon Shackelford, AR  


Significantly exceeded my expectations. Not only did I get a lot to work on, I gained so much because the small class allowed much more direct contact.  – Rich Goff, CA  

Not only met but exceeded on every level. Training, accommodations, wonderful vibe, throughout the weekend. – Mike Case, CA  

Trikke events always exceed my expectations. Having mostly whole group events but an opportunity for break outs with small class size and specialty training for one session was great. – Kimberly Myshka, AR  


The best part was the people. The trainers and participants created a sense of community. Prior to the Skkool I felt like I was out there alone trying to learn to ride this peculiar machine. Now I am part of a group. I have already been in contact with some of the people I met there. – Anonymous  

Thanks so much for organizing the Chicago Skkool, I learned a lot. I can’t think of any other product where it is possible to get such free access to the inventor / product developer and top trainers, it defines the ultimate in customer-support. It is impressive the way everyone was willing to flex and adapt so that people’s needs were met.  – Tony Ricketts, MI  


It was evident you all put considerable effort into this  skkool.  I can’t remember the last time I had a more enjoyable weekend.  I’ve been a trikke addict now for three years, riding essentially in isolation from other trikke riders.   Last weekend I felt like I found a group of long lost family and friends I never knew I had.  Everyone was so friendly and personable. The entire weekend was so much fun and the activities were well planned. I just didn’t want the weekend to end. I’m so glad I attended the skkool.  The tips and advice Fred, Gildo and Rebecca gave me have helped me take my trikke riding enjoyment to a new level.  – Dean Gossett, IN  


It was more than I expected.  I walked away with the ability to ride and the knowledge on what to do to improve.  Awesome!!! – Anonymous  

Since the Skkool I have lost 17 lbs and gone from a 38 to 34 waist. Love the training!  – Mark Steck, MO
