Teaching People on Bikes to Ride Safely
Education has been a core activity of the League’s since the late 1970’s. Virtually every state and local bicycling education program can trace its roots directly back to the League’s program, so even though the names may be different, the core content of what’s being taught around the country is quite consistent over the years. It is designed to work with experience levels ranging from brand new bicyclists up to experienced bicyclists who want to refine their skills and teach others.
The League’s education program offers the only nationwide cycle instructor certification program.
The evolution of the program
The program was known for many years simply as BikeEd, and the nomenclature for classes was Road I, Road II, Kids I, Kids II etc.; names that you may still hear in use today.
