training from as far away as Hawaii and
as close as Fort Collins. We had all regions of the continental U.S. represented. It was purposefully a small group in
number (the League has 19 active Smart
Cycling Coaches) but expansive in level
of experience and knowledge.
The start of our days together kicked
off with a ride to see Platinum-level Bicycle Friendly Community Fort Collins by
bike. We experienced new off road paved
trails, new on-road separated bike lanes, a
brand new skills hub, on-road turn pockets designed specifically for bikes and
much more. Bus drivers and other motorists were visibly in tune to people on
bikes sharing the road. The roads were
very comfortable from the saddle of a bicycle.
Thursday was spent discussing best
practices of a League Cycling Instructor
seminar, everything from how to most effectively communicate with students to
how to best market Smart Cycling class.
We learned other aspects from seminars
held in Texas, California, Georgia, Oregon, Washington, D.C., Louisiana and
more. The following day we rode to the
new Fort Collins Skills Hub where we
shot video footage of each of the eight
parking lot drills in an effort to standardize how each of these drills is being conducted and instructed across the country.
Watch for the videos to be available in
the coming months in the LCI portal of
bikeleague.org!
We finished the day with being certified as Bicycle Friendly Drivers in the FC
Bikes-created Bicycle Friendly Driver
program. This group of bike safety educators will again be meeting at the National Bike Summit held in Washington,
D.C., from March 5-7. We all left excited
to continue the conversations and the
growth of the League's Smart Cycling
program.
