Attention to anyone interested in bicycle education: LMB will be hosting a Traffic Skills 101 class in Detroit on Sunday, October!

The Traffic Skills 101 course is designed for cyclists who want to become more confident in riding on the streets and riding with traffic.  For anyone interested in becoming a League Cycling Instructor (LCI), this class is the required first step in becoming an LCI.

The Traffic Skills 101 course provides an overview of how to ride safely and legally in traffic.  It aims to give cyclists the confidence to ride more often and to more destinations.  Specifically, the course topics will include:

  • Bicycle laws
  • Rules of the road
  • Lane positioning
