Upcoming BikeEd classes in Missouri

The Road I Certification is a bicycle education program offered exclusively by League Cycling Instructors. What is BikeEd?
Simply knowing how to ride a bike is not the same as knowing how to operate a bike safely and legally.

This basic 9 hour Road I course is perfect as a primer for those cyclist who wish to gain a full understanding of how to safely operate a bicycle in a variety of situations. The 9 hour class includes learning how to perform a bicycle safety check, fixing a flat, interactive discussion, on-bike skills practice and student manual. Students will gain confidence knowing that they are riding legally and safely. Crash avoidance techniques and crash types will be discussed. Recommended for adults and children above 14. This is a required course for those interested in becoming a League Cycling Instructor.
The Missouri Bicycle Federation wholeheartedly recommends the BikeEd courses to all bicyclists in Missouri. Experienced bicyclists can learn a lot from this class--nearly the entire MoBikeFed board has taken Road I, and enjoyed it. And cyclists who are just getting back into riding can save years of frustration.

And most of all--the class is a lot of fun!
