  • Michael Grube
  • Julie Harris
  • Sarah Johnson

League Cycling Instructors offer courses to suit the needs of any cyclist. Certified, insured and equipped to teach anything from basic skills to college level courses, LCIs are the experts in bicycle education and safety. As LCIs, they are certified to teach the League’s bicycle education (Smart Cycling) curriculum including:
  • Traffic Skills 101 (the basic introductory/intermediate course for adult cyclists)
  • Traffic Skills 201 (an advanced adult course)
  • Kids I (designed for parents of children under 10 years of age)
  • Kids II (designed for children 10-14 [4th & 5th graders] including on-road practice).
LCIs can also offer modified versions of these courses and design bike rodeos and provide general safety consulting.
