Join Bicycling In Greensboro (BIG) this spring to learn more about bicycle safety and become a League Cycling Instructor certified by the League of American Bicyclists.
On March 28, BIG will host a fast-paced 8-hour Traffic Skills 101 (TS101) class at UNCG. While this class is a pre-requisite for the League Cycling Instructor (LCI) Seminar, it is designed for bicyclists at all skill levels who desire to ride safely in traffic and on trails. Led by LCIs, this League of American Bicyclists Ride Smart class will teach you how to conduct bicycle safety checks and fix a flat, on-bike skills, crash avoidance techniques and NC bicycle laws. Registration is open at www.bikegso.org. The fee is $25 for non-BIG members and $15 for BIG members. This fee includes lunch.
June 12-14, BIG will host the League of American Bicyclists as they present a League Cycling Instructor seminar. Successful candidates who complete this seminar will then be able to teach the Ride Smart classes in their own communities. You must complete the TS101 class and be a member of the League of American Bicyclists in order to register for the LCI seminar. Registration is open for the seminar at www.bikeleague.org. (Unless you are logged into the website as member, the seminar will show as closed to registration.)
