YES offered a School Cycling Instructor Training to become a Level 4 for 18 eager cycling experts. All participants are USA Cycling Coaches, National Interscholastic Cycling Association Coaches and League of Bicyclist, League Cycling Instructors.
One potential School Cycling Instructor gave this review on the YES Facebook page:
“YES trains school teachers in how to teach bicycling as a PE class in elementary, middle, and high schools. Learning better bike-handling and safety skills improves kids’ safety on the streets when they walk or bicycle to school, and can increase SR2S (safe routes to school) and Bike-to-School participation, too”.
Becoming a certified School Cycling Instructor so I can show teachers how to offer basic skills to their school students is a natural addition to my work as a League Cycling Instructor with the League of American Bicyclists. I am thrilled to be able to equip teachers so they can teach their students the bike-handling skills I only learned as an adult–because no bicycle classes of any kind were offered when I was in high school.
