Becoming a League Cycling Instructor
Get certified with Bike Easy!
Are you an experienced bike rider who has thought about teaching others how to become safe cyclists?
By becoming a League Cycling Instructor (LCI), you can help New Orleans become a safer bicycling community and help Bike Easy educate Greater New Orleans about bike safety. League Cycling Instructors are certified by the League of American Bicyclists (LAB) to teach bicycle safety.
According to the League, League Cycling Instructors (LCIs) are certified to teach the Smart Cycling classes using the League of American Bicyclist (LAB) curriculum. Their goal is to help people feel more secure about getting on a bike, to create the mindset that bikes are treated as vehicles, and to ensure that people on bicycles know how to ride safely and legally. LCIs are members of the LAB and have completed an intense 3-day seminar training. LAB certified instructors are active within the bicycling community and are covered by the LAB liability insurance.
Once someone successfully completes the LCI Seminar, they are qualified to be a hired by Bike Easy as a contracted Bike Easy Safety Instructor. As a Bike Easy Safety Instructor, you would support Bike Easy’s efforts by delivering bicycle and pedestrian safety education as a contract worker throughout the New Orleans region through classes and outreach events.
Bike Easy is hosting an LCI Seminar August 24th-26th at the Bike Easy office, 2100 O.C. Haley Blvd. Bike Easy will provide 10 participants scholarships to cover the cost of the LCI Seminar ($350).
