About the LCI Seminar

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 Smart Cycling curriculum, both in the classroom and in the parking lot. The seminar is normally one evening and two full days. Generally, one-third of the time is on-bike, so students should be prepared to ride. Click here to find a seminar near you.

The registration fee is $500 (effective April 2020) and includes the seminar materials. Download the LCI Seminar Description - great for submitting to an employer or for a grant.

In striving to achieve our mission of building a Bicycle Friendly America for everyone, one of our primary objectives is developing and supporting a more diverse community of League Cycling Instructors (LCI). Representation matters and people of every race, gender identity, and background should be able to see themselves in the bicycling community. With the help of Ford Philanthropy, the League offers Equity Scholarships to attend a LCI Seminar. Click here to learn more and apply for the scholarship.
