The League of American Bicyclists’ Smart Cycling program is designed to develop your knowledge and expertise in the craft and science of bicycling — the ability to use a bicycle with confidence and competence for pleasure, utility and sport under various highway, climate, terrain, and traffic conditions.

The bicycling education program was started in 1974, and continues to be the only nationally recognized cycling education program with trained and certified instructors.

Traffic Skills 101 is the foundation of the program. It provides instruction and guidance in the basic principles of vehicular bicycling. Bicyclists have more fun when they ride with skill and confidence. This course combines classroom discussion and
parking lot activities with on-road practice of the principles of vehicular bicycling. The instructor for this course is certified by the League of American Bicyclists and has years of experience and training.

This class is a prerequisite for becoming an LCI cycling instructor (a class we will be offering later on this year)

$30 for MassBike members, $40 for non-members
