This week Katie joined a group of cycling enthusiasts and advocates from around the Southeast to become a LCI, or a League of American Cyclists League Certified Instructor. Katie had a series of on and off-bike tests as well as discussions about how cycling and proper cycling instruction can improve the fabric of our cities. The League of American Cyclists focuses on vehicular cycling, where cyclists assert themselves and follow the rules of the road like any other vehicle (truck, car, bus). It is way safer and a part of an ongoing culture shift. One of the benefits of this training is that Katie can now lead group rides throughout the country with the backing of the League. Pretty empowering!
