WHAT’S A LEAGUE CYCLING INSTRUCTOR?

League Cycling Instructors (LCIs) are ambassadors for better biking through education. After earning certification through a 3-day, League Coach-led seminar, LCIs teach Smart Cycling classes to children as well as adults. Their goal is to help people feel more secure about getting on a bike, to create a mindset that bikes are treated as a vehicle, and to ensure that people on bikes know how to ride safely and legally.

STEPS TO BECOMING A LEAGUE CYCLING INSTRUCTOR:

1. Successfully pass the Smart Cycling Complete class (Traffic Skills 101) with a 85% or better.

2. Register for a LCI Seminar

3. Attend all 3 days of the seminar

THE LCI SEMINAR

The LCI training seminar focuses on teaching and demonstration techniques used with future students both on the road and in the classroom. The seminar emphasis is on how to teach bicycle safety and skills so as to provide increased comfort and confidence for new and returning bicyclists and youth. The seminar does not emphasize the content or specific details of the cycling course curricula. It is primarily about teaching, and each candidate will have opportunities during the seminar to practice facilitating parts of the Smart Cycling curriculum, both in the classroom and in the parking lot. The seminar is normally one evening and two full days. Generally, 1/3 of the time is on-bike, so students should be prepared to ride. Click here to find a seminar near you.

The registration fee is $500 (effective April 2020) and includes the seminar materials. Download the LCI Seminar Description- great for submitting to an employer or for a grant.
