Classes for those on trikes and bikes

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the City of Decatur, Georgia’s Active Living Department chose to use this photo of mine in its latest playbook of class offerings to promote the Silver Spokes seniors-on-trikes class that I co-taught last year.

Hub of information

There’s a “hub” accessible only to League Cycling Instructors (LCIs) on the League of American Bicyclist’s website, and an LCI in Denver asked if anyone was making money from teaching.

Seniors-on-trikes

Seniors-on-trikes is starting up again this week, now that the summer heat has started to break here in Atlanta, GA. This is a fun class, and you learn a lot. (I tell a few stories about it in my book.) Plus, almost everything we teach is transferable to two-wheels as well as part of the…
