Congratulations to Seven New Bike Trainers in Asheville/BuncombeDuring November, 7 local cyclists became League Certified Instructors. These people successfully completed a more than 20-hour course developed by the League of American Bicyclists. The new LCI’s join three other local LCI’s bringing Asheville-Buncombe a total of TEN LCI’s. Ten LCI’s increases our capacity for more educational programs geared to both adults and children. We hope to expand our educational programs to middle school students and our outreach to adult cyclists through more Traffic Skills 101 courses. We also plan to add training for commuters and families. We will contact businesses, clubs, social groups and religious groups and offer tailored programs to their employees and members. If you are interested in taking a class or have other ideas, please post a comment on Strive Not to Drive’s blog.
