Teaching Bicycling Skills and Building Confidence to Ride
Education has been a core activity of the League since the 1970s. Virtually every state and local bicycling education program can trace its roots directly back to the League’s program. Our education programs are designed to reach people of all ages and abilities by improving skills, building confidence, and teaching others.
The League offers the only nationwide bicycling instructor certification. Learn how to become an LCI.
The evolution of the program
The Smart Cycling program was known for many years simply as BikeEd, with classes named Road I, Road II, Kids I, Kids II, etc., names you may still hear in use today.
