Columbus LCIs Offering Spring Courses

Last year, Columbus gained seven new League of American Bicyclists Cycling Instructors, and those instructors are now preparing spring classes for those interested in the safest ways to travel the roads on a bicycle.

The League of American Bicyclists cycling education courses are designed to help all cyclists, no matter what your goals. Transportation cyclists, racers, triathletes, mountain bicyclists, and club riders will all benefit from the basic skills in the LAB's Traffic Skills 101 course.

The details are as follows. If you're interested or have further questions, please contact one of the instructors in the course time/dates that interest you, or feel free to contact me at jfellrath@gmail.com if you have any general questions (or have interest in taking a course but not at the dates/times listed). We're also interested in preparing courses later in May/early June.
