Smart Cycling 101 Coming Up!

I received the following email today from the MPLS Dept. of Public Works and am passing it on in case others are interested:

Greetings everyone,


You expressed an interest in taking a Smart Cycling 101 Course – the pre-requisite for becoming a League Certified Instructor for the League of American Bicyclists.  In this certificate course you will learn basic maintenance, safe street riding practices, and on-street practical experience. This course will help to develop your skills as an urban bicyclist and give you confidence to navigate the urban landscape safely and successfully.


The Bike Walk Ambassador Program will be offering several upcoming courses.  The first is coming up quickly this Friday and Saturday, so sign up soon if you’re interested!  All of these courses are multi-day; you have to be able to attend all sessions, and bring a bike in good working order and a helmet.  Please register online for the courses here, or contact Jacqueline Scott-Hopkins at 612-333-3410 or email her here.

I am interested in taking the class, partly to see what it's about and partly because I think it would be worthwhile to get my LCI. I might also learn something. Unfortunately, the close local one does not work for me due to a prior commitment. I may have to work a little harder to get this under belt it seems.
