What is a League Cycling Instructor (LCI)?
First and foremost, an LCI is an experienced and knowledgeable
cyclist who has the desire to educate bicyclists and motorists so
they can safely share the road. LCIs are instructors certified to

operate a bike safely and legally. Using BikeEd curricula, LCIs instruct
both children and adults so they can learn the skills and techniques
needed to feel safe and comfortable riding a bicycle on the road.
LCIs are certified to teach:
• Road I (the basic introductory/intermediate course for adult cyclists)
• Road II (an advanced adult course)
• Kids I (designed for the parents of children under 10 years of age)
• Kids II (designed for children 10-14 [4th & 5th graders] including

centers, bike shops, bike clubs, schools, motorists, and other places
where bicycle education can be promoted. The League does not
organize classes, but classes may be publicized for free on the
