In light of our tragic October, many folks wondered how we could do a better job educating bicyclists about how to ride more defensively.
Below is a notice about some training courses by the League of American Bicyclists that are being offered in Eugene in February:
League of American Bicyclists Instructor Certification Courses Coming to Eugene
Help bring the joy of safe cycling to others! Becoming a League Cycling Instructor (LCI) certified to teach Bike Education is a great way to encourage positive and safe cycling skills in our community.
Certified instructors can teach BikeEd classes to children as well as adults. If you are an experienced cyclist and would enjoy teaching skills on safe cycling to others, please consider taking this step towards certification. Those interested in becoming an LCI must complete the Road-One course prior to enrolling in the LCI certification course.
The two-day Road-1 course will be offered February 1st – 2nd in Eugene. The registration fee has been reduced to $20. This class is sponsored by the City of Eugene Transportation Options.
