League launches Houston Bike Ed program
On this Bike to Work Day — the tenth time Houston has celebrated the day — League President Andy Clarke and Education Director Preston Tyree, together with the City of Houston, announced the launch of BikeEd.org, an online Bicycle Education tool. BikeEd.org represents the classroom component of the League’s Traffic Skills 101 course. You take the online bicycle education course; find League-Certified Instructors (LCI) and hands-on classes, and other resources. The City of Houston developed the resource with the League’s materials. It has been used by their city staff and the Houston-to-Austin MS Ride ride marshals and team captains. Today is the national debut. We will be rolling it out over the course of the summer.
On another note, the Houston Chronicle reports on Bike to Work Day with this amusing sub-headline, “Cycling to the job in Houston is getting easier. Now if only it were a little cooler.”
