About Your Riding
Registration does not guarantee entry into the seminar nor does it guarantee certification as an LCI. Before your scheduled seminar date, you will need to successfully pass the pre-assessment with a grade of 85% or better at least two weeks before the seminar, and spend time thoughtfully preparing two lessons – one individual and one joint – which will require working together with others in your seminar. Timely communication with your Coach is essential to preparation.
The League reserves the right to exclude candidates from the seminar if tasks are not completed by the deadlines.
We expect that experienced bicyclists are seeking certification. This class is meant primarily to focus on how best to teach bicycling education. Additionally, this weekend is not about learning how to ride safely, it's about teaching safe riding. Attendance at all seminar hours is mandatory and does not guarantee certification. All candidates are required to maintain a politically neutral stance in all aspects of the seminar as well as any classes they may instruct as LCIs.
Successful candidates will have a strong working knowledge of bikes and bike maintenance and a great deal of experience riding with traffic on roadways. Successful candidates also have strong core values aligned with philosophies of the League, including helmet use, bicycling infrastructure, and full incorporation of the idea that all people who ride bicycles are equal cyclists, regardless of political affiliation, race, gender, age or religion and that all students deserve respectful, polite and meaningful instruction.
