Become a League Certified Instructor

So you want to become a League Cycling Instructor?

league-logoLeague Cycling Instructors (LCIs) are certified to teach the League’s Smart Cycling curriculum to help people feel more secure riding a bike, to create a mindset that bikes should be treated as a vehicle, and to ensure bicyclists know how to ride safely and legally. Once certified as an LCI, you’re able to teach our curriculum and are covered by an insurance policy that indemnifies you while teaching a class.

Bike Cleveland is hosting an LCI certification class in August, 2016. The certification includes a mix of class time, skills and drills, and outside rides / exams on live Cleveland streets.

Steps to becoming an LCI


The LCI training seminar focuses on teaching and demonstration techniques used with future students both on the road and in the classroom. The seminar emphasis is on how to teach bicycle safety and skills so as to provide increased comfort and confidence for new and returning bicyclists and youth. The Seminar does not emphasize the content or specific details of the cycling course curricula. It is primarily about teaching, and each candidate will have opportunities during the seminar to practice facilitating parts of the Traffic Skills 101 curriculum, both in the classroom and in the parking lot. The seminar is normally one evening and two full days. Generally, 1/3 of the time is on-bike, so students should be prepared to ride.
