LAB League Cycling Instructor Certification 5/3-5/5 2019

LAB League Certified Instructor Program to be held in Santa Fe.

Bike Santa Fe will be hosting the first local League Certified Instructor training program. It will be hosted May 3rd and 5th 2019. The program will certify up to a dozen new bicycle instructors in the League of American Bicyclists’ nationally recognized training program. All local, state-wide or regional cyclists who have completed LAB Smart Cycling are welcome to sign up.
“To be able to hold this training program in Santa Fe is a major step in the development of local bicycling,” says Gary Schiffmiller, president and lead instructor for Bike Santa Fe, the primary local bicycle advocacy organization. “With the addition of 12 new instructors to our roster we can move forward in providing bicycle safety programs in the public schools, to law enforcement officers, to civic employees and to a wide cross section of community groups who would like to ride more safely and confidently on Santa Fe’s streets and trails.”
The LCI training program has been devised by the League of American Bicyclists to train instructors to teach the LAB Smart Cycling course. The course will be taught by National League Coach Vanessa Bissey-Beard. Anyone interested can sign up for the class by April 6, 2019 and at this link:
Among those who have signed up for the LCI program in recent days are school teachers, attorneys, business leaders and several active recent retirees, all dedicated to helping make Santa Fe a stronger cycling community. However there is still space available for a few additional participants.
The cost of the class is $350. However thanks to the generosity of sponsors such as James Armijo at State Farm Insurance and the Kiwanis Foundation Zozobra Grant Program, a small number of scholarships may be available.
All interested participants will be required to be members of LAB and to have completed the LAB Smart Cycling class 30 days prior to the LCI class. An additional Smart Cycling class will be held in Santa Fe on March 28th and 30th 2019 to prepare potential candidates.
